New project inked
AFTER working as a tattoo artist for five years, Dan Harris has turned his talent for art into clothing.
Mr Harris worked at Sink the Ink Tattooz in Gatton but decided to move into another area to expand his creative talents.
“I have recently left to pursue my interest in art and clothing design,” Mr Harris said.
His latest venture involves helping neglected or abused animals.
“I am currently working on a few pieces of artwork for Compassion Art Day which is being held at Edgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary in Kimlore, Victoria on April 17.”
“This event includes an auction of the artwork submitted which my work will be a part of with the proceeds from my artwork to be donated to Edgar's Mission.”
In terms of designing clothing, Mr Harris is airbrushing his art work onto clothing.
“A lot of my artwork involves animals and I will be sending off photo to Victoria to Kilmore at a show there with other artists.
“The proceeds will then go to helping animals there and hopefully it will help get my name out there.”
He said for people that don't know what airbrushing is, it is similar to the bodywork art on cars.
“So people can get a taste of what I am doing, it is exactly the same except on clothing and it will give people a better quality t-shirt image.”
