Ever since the second edition of Guy Aitchison#39;s flagship educational package Reinventing The Tattoo was released, he has been planning to make an electronic edition which could be updated to keep up with the rapid pace of change in our industry. It#39;s been a long time in the making, but we now have the beta edition of the Reinventing e-book available in a specially priced beta edition. For starters, it#39;s given Guy a chance to go back through the entire text and rewrite parts of it to reflect our current understandings of tattooing, plus it was a chance to get the Photoshop chapters current and talk about the changes happening with equipment. But that#39;s just the tip of the iceberg. This new edition is subscription based, with the goal of adding new content regularly so that your Reinventing experience is constantly evolving and can be customized to your path as a developing artist. The current version offers:
- Updated chapters from the original book
- Instant access to all supporting video material
- New chapters from guest writers Nick Baxter, Russ Abbott and Megan Jean Morris
- Handy format that adapts to any device and works well on your phone
- Access to new forums focused on critiquing
As we get into full swing over coming months, we will continue to refine and build the curriculum and the interface to include such things as:
- Text or email notifications of new material
- Smoother and more intuitive interface
- Special version focused on apprenticeships
- New tutorials including an acrylic painting workshop and an updated look at coverup tattooing
- Additional guest chapters from many of your favorite artists!
For those not familiar with the Reinventing The Tattoo curriculum, it#39;s been the gold standard in art education in the tattoo industry for over 18 years and has helped thousands of artists to find their full potential as tattooists, including many members of our profession who are now among the biggest names in the industry. The material starts out by focusing on essential design principles such as flow and fit, contrast, positive/negative relationships, lighting, linework, and other important components in design composition. Then if takes you on a detailed review of working in other mediums, working with references, using digital tools, and in general making use of every available tool to enhance your design capabilities to their fullest. Then the technical chapters walk you through everything from setup to ergonomics to some very detailed instruction of actually putting the needle to skin, including hours of closeup video footage. Reinventing The Tattoo is as detailed and up-to-date as anything of its kind that has ever been published, and will only continue to become more sophisticated as more artists get involved. Subscribe now to take advantage of the special beta pricing and to help us make the transition to the new electronic format!
