WARNING: This is not your average illustration class!

Sydney, rejoice!  We’re bringing you a tattoo artist at the height of his game, to teach you all you need to know about tattoo illustration.

Renowned artist Aidan Mckenzie aka Sprinkles will guide you through different genres of tattoo illustration, teaching you the tricks of the trade for anyone wanting to improve their drawing or just interested in tattoo art.

Please note: This class requires at least eight students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:

  • Materials you will require for an illustration

  • Simple techniques of the different stages from transferring a sketch to tracing paper, illustration paper to the final copy.

“Sprinkles” is a self taught Tattoo and Contemporary Artist based in Sydney.

Hailing from humble Palmerston North New Zealand, with a well rooted sense of Cook Island, Maori and Chinese heritage “Sprinkles” is now earning a well respected name in his Sydney base. With a strong thirst for progression and an ever evolving style, Sprinks’ works strive to portray the many different faces we can find within ourselves.

Based on a foundation of family and friendship, his “Sprinkle Stacks” and mystical creations ride an evolved relationship with tattoo machines, aerosol cans, brushes, intricate linework and symmetry. Unafraid of a subtle nod to the darker side of imagery, skulls, fantastical animals, majestic beings and beautiful women commonly compose Sprinks’ artistic vocabulary.

“Sprinkles” has been Tattooing full time for three years and specializes in working with black ink.
