"The piece of Ninja represents a moment of intense commitment. It is referenced from a photograph that I took of him just before I tattooed the numbers 1 6 on his face. It is the calm unspoken genius that I have had the privilege to witness. The piece of Yo-Landie represents the outward, publicly glamorous celebration of our culture. It was referenced from a photograph that I took of her just after I hand-poked Chappie the chipmunk on her arm.
My uncle bought me a book printed in 1945, called Line Drawing For Reproduction. Right near the back on the second to last page is a scraper board illustration that was done by W.G. Easton. It is an image of a Fisherman in his full fishing outfit, ready for a storm. It's a superb piece of work that I keep near me whenever I draw in this style. It is the measure of excellence. The idea to use the images of Ninja and Yo-Landie balances between two things. One is me, being a staunch supporter and friend, the other is their obvious popular appeal." - Tyler B Murphy
This RUN is signed, numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Tyler B Murphy and 1xRUN.
My introduction to the good life was through skateboarding. It increased when I started doing graffiti in 1994. The painting led me into a tattoo shop to do a mural, where I ended up getting a Saturday job, fetching and cleaning. After two years of weekends, I had finished school, and started a full time 5 year apprenticeship. I tattooed myself and my mates until 2001 when I started tattooing every day. When I opened my own shop, Sins of Style, I was able to limit the styles of work that I do, and it gave me the freedom to turn away work that I don’t find artistically rewarding. The easy pace of the shop gives me plenty of time to draw up most tattoos from scratch. Shortly after opening, two of my favourite people, Lee and David joined me to help increase the good life in the city bowl.
