SAM SPRATT’S SPRING PORTRAIT CONTEST/CUSTOM PORTRAIT/SIGNED PRINT GIVEAWAY!
Spring is around the corner which means as thanks to you for following me here, as usual—I am giving TWO of you the chance to win a custom portrait made by me, custom-tailored to your heart’s desire. Free, no strings attached.  The rules are simple, but read them so you can win.
What You Get:
A Web-resolution (1100 pixel) custom portrait, tailored to your most bizarre of requests. You can get a very traditional portrait done or as outlandish as you can dream. Zombies, Hipsters, Pirates, Ninjas, Superheroes, Robots, etc. are all fair-game themes in which you can have yourself transmogrified in painted form.
ADDITIONALLY, I’ll be giving 3 runner-ups their choice of a 13”x19” signed velvet archival print. Choices are: Sherlock, Ron Swanson, and Inspector Spacetime.
How to Enter:
FACEBOOK: Simply comment on the following facebook post. You get an extra entry if you click the “share” button and post it to your wall. ( Sam Spratt - Facebook Contest )
TWITTER: Follow http://twitter.com/#!/SamSpratt and tweet the following phrase verbatim on twitter: 
“ Entering to win a custom portrait #painting from @samspratt’s portrait contest! https://www.facebook.com/sam.spratt ”  
This also counts as an entry.
TUMBLR: Just reblog/like this post!
How long this will last:
This contest will run until April 6th, 2012. 
You all are the best! Good luck and thanks again to all who follow my little slice of artwork on the web.
NOTE: You must be a follower or subscriber at the time of the win. 
Why all this? Well, you’ve gotta write a big check with quite a few zeros at the end of it to commission art from me—and call me crazy, but I firmly believe that in a perfect world, people *should* get to own art AND do things like “pay rent”, “eat food-like substances on occasion”, and maybe even “continue to live”. Two of you can do that, the rest of you… you’re screwed. Sincerely, <3 Sam

Awesome Song. I've always wanted to do something like this.

fuckyeahtattoos:

My full sleeve is based off the song Play Crack the Sky, from the album Deja Entendu by Brand New.

Play Crack the Sky is one of those songs that helped get me through a lot. The way I’ve interpreted it to be is that it is a huge metaphor for love, using references to the sea, a ship, and eventually a shipwreck (but never directly stated). On my forearm is the shipwreck’s debris washed up on shore, leading up to a grassy area where the astronaut - from Deja Entendu’s album artwork - resides, and behind him is a house and lighthouse, providing a destination where the ship never quite made it to. “To the port I see the lighthouse through the sleet and the rain…”

Brand New and their masterpiece, Play Crack the Sky, have inspired me to do everything I do involving music and poetry. I also recently went through a nasty break-up with the love of my life for the past 2 1/2 years, so the timing could not have played out anymore perfect.

The artist’s name is Mic Wesker from 3 Lions Tattoo in Las Vegas. I have had this idea for years now. He was able to take my vision, turn it into his own, and bring the entire thing to life. A true tattoo “artist”. I could not be any more happy with how it turned out.

Thank you, Mic, for being able to capture what it was that I saw in my head.
