Fine artist, illustrator and tattoo artist
Today on the show we have artist Danny Meza, who is both an amazing up and coming illustrator, mashing together Japanese and Mexican popular arts in his recent work, but he is the resident tattoo artist in downtown Santa Barbara at 805 Ink…and possibly coming to a tattoo convention near you, so check it out. I first saw Danny's work when I attended open studio at Derek Harrison's place and it turns out they share the same studio, and I really liked his Sinaloa cowboy illustration and we started talking about Japanese woodcut artists we like.
For this episode we sat down at that exact same studio and talked about his life, his time in L.A. for design school, where his art comes from, the ins and outs of tattooing, his weekly life painting salons, and more! I hope you enjoy our chat.
