Black Anchor Academy 2018 Recap

We are overwhelmed with the amount of support we received to make the 2018 trip possible!

Many of our loyal clients purchased tattoo time to help make the trip happen. 😏 Some even encouraged their friends & family to get in on the action, 😉 NICE! We just want to say THANK YOU for the support! We hope what we have learned at the Academy will translate into some amazing tattoos and art for all of you as we continue to pursue our Niche Style that identifies us as Fawcett Tattoos!  Our dream is to become Well Respected International Tattoo Artists who are Sponsored & Endorsed by The Tattoo Industry! This is a big task but we are up for the challenge! Our goal is to travel with our careers as artists doing both street art and tattoos around the world by the time our children are teenagers. After we tour many shops, save some cash and work for many artists to learn their ways we will settle back home in Edmonton, Alberta to build our Dream Art Studio. We plan to hire a few local artists and offer a guest spot location for all the artists we made friends with on our travels! This was the first step we needed to take in order to make some connections and network with like minded artists. These artists want to raise the whole community so our industry thrives for years to come #TattooUnity. 

We had an great time during this amazing hands on art and tattoo workshop!

We learned many new drawing and tattooing techniques that have helped us

become better artists over the last year! We believe that being an artist is a

journey and workshops are part of the growth process to help refined an

artists technical approach & style.

We learned that when you time yourself, you're forced to capture as much simple information as quickly as possible so you can still fill in the rest of the information later as needed. Sergio also showed us many tricks and tips that are only handed down to students of colleges and universities. Some of the cool tricks we learned are how to sharpen a charcoal pencil with a razor blade and how to hold the pencil with an "underhand grip" to get smoother longer lines in our sketches with less effort. 

 

Sergio is an amazing humble teacher who loves sharing his knowledge with those who are eager to receive it. He has taught at Colleges and tattooed around the world! His teaching style is amazing and his skills are stunning! 

We own some of the books that Sergio brought with him to the lesson to help explain a few theories.  We honestly didn't understand the theories in the books we own until Sergio explained them in relation to tattooing. He simplified such complex subjects into easy to understand tattoo terms.  He diced up the difficult topic of Figurative drawing down to tangible nibbles and they tasted SO GOOD! 

 

The first day we spent learning all about the human form and how

to properly "capture the information" to create a simple figurative sketch. 

We used this knowledge to create simple silhouettes to more complex sketches

with lighting and detail. Sergio helped explain how to break down the

"information" we saw in front of us and gave us 2 min. - 5 min. to draw.

This sketching technique helped us to better understand how to evaluate the

information and capture the likeness of the model quickly. To be honest the first

round was very difficult because we wanted to capture 100% of the details right

away! Lol, we were told this was a typical first timers response. Sergio helped

us learn the skill of focusing on 10% of the information at a time to capture

the lines and shapes that make up the over all structure. He broke down the

different lines and shapes that make up the human form. He also explained how

it is easier to capture a little information at a time to make the over all image

come together much quicker. This skill will take much more practice to refine

but it was an area we didn't even know we had a weakness in until he shed a light on it. Sergio also helped us define "Pits", "Shadows",  "Core Lighting" , "Bounce Lighting" "The Terminator" and "Fall Off" in our drawings to help get a better over all image. 

We can honestly say that this was one of the coolest most informative art lessons we have ever attended! 

On day two we applied the knowledge we had learned on day one to black and grey tattooing. It was a little challenging to try and figure out how we we were going to translate the information we learned on day one to tattooing since we had little understanding of figurative drawing. With some great guidance and enthusiastic encouragement from our instructors we learned some new tattooing skills and how to apply the previous days knowledge to tattooing. One of the new skills that we really believe helped us grow exponentially over the last year was "Pendulum Shading" for traditional black an grey washes. Though you can watch this technique being demonstrated on their Instructional DVD's or Social Media...there is nothing like having The Master of the the technique show you in person! 

To have a Tattoo Master grab your hand and show your where your going wrong or what you need to change is rare! To have another artist help your refine your hand movements/gestures so you have the proper application is unheard of! Both Nikko and Sergio were so helpful and willing to give us a hands on demonstration in areas we were struggling to figure out and we are so grateful for the opportunity to learn from them!

❤️ Both Nikko & Sergio sat down at our stations and showed us exactly the movements they were doing with their hands so we could better understand what they were saying. 

It took some time for them to slow down and think about what they were actually doing with their hands so they could better explain it to us because what they do has become a natural habit. When they apologized for struggling to explain what they were doing, we laughed and said, " Take your time, this why we are here, to learn the movements/techniques you have made your habit!"

We were told a story were one student was very upset by Nikko demonstrating his techniques on the students practice skin. He didn't want anyone to touch "his precious", lol. This was not the case for us...we kept stoping and ease dropping on the instructions they were giving to everyone else so much that they invited us over to watch what they were saying & demonstrating to the other student!

 

We got so much out of this experience and we are so thankful for these amazing tattooers who are willing to share their knowledge with us! 

We had such a great experience last year and can't wait to go again this year to expand our tattoo & art knowledge! 

Nikko was such a gracious and generous host & his staff was amazing with accommodating our requests! We were 100% looked after while attending his Black Anchor Academy Workshop and even the cost of lunch & dinner during the workshop was covered! 

We even got the Hollywood Style Treatment with a Black Anchor Academy gift bag full of tattoo goodies. Each of our gift bags had a Black Anchor Academy T-shirt, a copy of Nikko Hurtado's Portrait Tattoo DVD,  a 8oz. bottle of Anchored Stencil Solution, 4oz. Jar of Vegan Blue, a Hive Caps Key Chain & Stickers. 

We were so excited to wear our new shirts we showed up to the workshop the second day! We couldn't wait to try out our new products the second we got home. We found the Vegan Blue to be great for our daughters eczema and worked great for wiping down A Pound of Flesh practice skin. We love Nikko's Anchored Stencil Solution so much we continue to use it every day for our tattoo stencils! 

 

We truly enjoyed good food and fellowship with like minded people. It was a breath of fresh air and really put some wind in our sails to create better art.

FAQ

HOW LONG WILL MY TATTOO TAKE?

IT'S VERY HARD FOR US TO TELL HOW LONG A TATTOO WILL TAKE UNLESS WE KNOW WHAT YOUR GETTING. THERE ARE MANY VARIABLES TO CONSIDER LIKE THE PLACEMENT, THE DESIGN, THE STYLE AND SIZE. WE HAVE DONE UP A SIMPLY TATTOO PRICE LIST TO GO OVER SOME OF THE VARIABLES AND AN AVERGE PRICE TO BE EXPECTED PER SIZE.  THE MORE COMPLEX THE IMAGE IS THE LONGER IT WILL TAKE TO APPLY TO THE SKIN. THE MORE SIMPLISTIC A TATTOO IS THE LESS TIME IT WILL TAKE TO COMPLETE. PORTRAIT AND REALISM WORK TAKE THE LONGEST AND HAVE THE MOST COMPLEX DETAILS! WE ASK THAT ALL CLIENTS WITH NEW PROJECTS BOOK A CONSULTATION TO GO OVER THEIR IDEAS WITH THEIR ARTIST TO GET AN APPROPRIATE PRICE QUOTE. 

HOW MUCH TATTOO TIME SHOULD I PURCHASE?

WE HAVE DONE UP A SIMPLY TATTOO PRICE LIST TO GO OVER SOME OF THE VARIABLES TO GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF THE AVERGE TIME & PRICE TO BE EXPECTED PER SIZE.  IF YOUR STILL NOT SURE HOW MUCH TIME TO PURCHASE AFTER LOOKING OVER THE LIST, WE ASK THAT YOU BOOK A CONSULTATION TO GO OVER TATTOO IDEAS WITH AN ARTIST TO GET AN APPROPRIATE TIME & PRICE QUOTE FOR THE INDIVIDUAL PROJECT.
