David Kassan Drawing Workshop

David Jon Kassan (born 1977 in Little Rock, Arkansas) is a contemporary American painter best known for his life-size representational paintings, which combine figurative subjects with abstract backgrounds or “tromp l’oeil texture studies,”[1] Of this dual representation strategy Kassan notes, “my effort to constantly learn to document reality with a naturalistic, representational painting technique allows for pieces to be inherent contradictions; paintings that are both real and abstract.”[2]

Kassan is a much sought after drawing and painting instructor because of his steadfast commitment to the age old discipline of working from life and creating compelling expressions of the human condition. He has given painting/drawing seminars and lectures at various institutions, and universities around the world. In 2013, he founded the Kassan Foundation in hopes of giving grants directly to underprivileged talent in both the visual and musical arts.

Kassan works can be seen in many public and private collections worldwide. He is represented by Gallery Henoch (Chelsea), New York, NY and The Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Culver City, CA. Kassan lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

New DVD added - Joe Swanson's: "Tattoo Style Drawing, Vol. 1"

submitted on 08.23.17

Joe Swanson has made notable contributions to the world of tattoo education with both his podcast and his tutorial DVDs.  His latest course, Tattoo Style Drawing, builds on some of the core artist fundamentals that can enhance a tattooist's toolkit.  

Tattoo Style Drawing - Volume 1 will walk the viewer through 6 chapters of design specific drawing instruction.

These age old drawing formulas and tricks have been used throughout history and are currently being used daily by some of todays top tattooers.  These tattoo style drawing tutorials will not only ease the drawing process for the viewer, but highly increase their artistic skills.

Included in TSD1 are effective instructions on drawing Flowers, Skulls, Spider Webs, Flames, Roses and Layering designs from Sketch to Final.

TSD1 will help artists at all levels.  The fringe artist interested in tattoo style designs, the artist looking to begin a tattoo career, and up to the veteran artist looking for some new tricks to make their work more efficient will all benefit from watching TSD1.

If you are interested in Joe's other title, we still have a few copies of his DVD - "Paint Tattoo Flash" available!
