🖋 Artist's bio

Aka Ryderdie 41 yrs young Tattooed from head to toe. 2 beautiful kids. My daughter goes to college. She is studying to be a lawyer. I’m beyond proud of her. She did it all on her own too. Arianna if this makes it in the book baby, I’m so proud of your and my son Ryder all he wants to do is skate. I love you son. I pick up a tattoo gun when I was 14 and I never put it down. My first tattoos where garbage lol But I kept at it. Now I slang that shit on a level. I didn’t really start drawing till I was about like 34 I guess. Why draw when I could tattoo. But I found myself in seg in prison with nothing to do lol So I pick up a pencil. You would think after tattooing for years it would have come easy for me lol The shading technic is way different. I find it easy to be able to powder shade or pepper shade with a needle. I taught myself on a single needle when I moved up to a pro gun (I prefer a rotary gun) it was an easy transfer. But I kept at it with the pencils. I finally bought an art set with the different pencil shade and fell in love. I am a fine black and white guy. I love the black and white contrast. But drawing and tattooing help me escape when I feel these prison walls are closing in on me. My favorite tattoo that I did on myself is a Taylor Swift that I did on my leg while sitting on lock down on a level 4 yard. And yes, I am a big fan! This drawing I submitted is my first time with a color pencil. Completely out of my comfort zone. .
