Oriental Pack: Dragons + Mike Dorsey + Ching
DRAGONS – THE COLLECTION BY FILIP LEU
After almost twenty years since the publication of the first limited edition book, DRAGONS Vol. 1 by Filip Leu, which was followed the year after by DRAGONS Vol. 2 by Filip Leu – both of which were sold out in a matter of months – now Dragons – The Collection is here by popular demand for everyone who loves great tattooing.
This book is a collection of 90 illustrations of dragons which Filip Leu made for the first two volumes, with an additional 10 new illustrations, created specifically for this new volume by the indisputable master of this subject.
This study book is a must-have for everyone looking for references for such a powerful and beloved subject in the tattoo world.
It represents an inexhaustible resource to understand how to create movement in a tattoo design at its best.
JAPAN REIMAGINED BY MIKE DORSEY
Classic tales from the Japanese cultural tradition and timeless icons of this style – such as geisha, samurai, kabuki theatre actors, good and evil spirts, as well as divinities – become the protagonists of this book by Mike Dorsey, in a world that is fast-paced and bizarre, distorted and ironic.
It’s a flurry of emotions which at times draws you into a universe that resembles Blade Runner set during the ukiyo-e period, with costumes fashioned according to Japanese traditions that are revisited in color, and details that display the crazy genius of their creator, every time. In other illustrations the light is thrown on individual frames, “selfies” of characters, portraits of strange figures which at first glance seem to be presented in a classic style according to the ukiyo-e guidelines, but are actually revisited by playing with small details that emerge silently, in which you can sense a clear condemnation of global consumerism and the vices of a society that seems to be slowly decaying.
SIGNS OF ORIENT CHING
Buddhas in vivid bright colours, samurais, koi carp and dragons, women floating like leaves in the wind move across the body, accompanied by striking backgrounds of water, waves, flowers, breathing life into magnificent backpieces, frontpieces, bodysuits, sleeves and legs for you to study up close in detail.
