Go Buy This: Scott Campbell - “If You Don't Belong, Don't Be Long” (Signed)

Brooklyn tattoo and fine artist Scott Campbell is releasing his first book via Rizzoli next Tuesday February 14th entitled “If You Don't Belong, Don't Be Long”.  For those who are big fans of the artists work there is a special being offered for a limited time via OHWOW that is pretty exciting. For $100 you will get a signed edition of the book with some personalized sketches included. Looking at the examples below Scott goes far beyond the usual doodle that many artists offer up in similar deals giving you an original piece of art when it’s all said and done.
  “Adored by his patrons and admired by his peers, Scott Campbell is known not only for his amazing technique and vision as a tattoo artist, but also as a respected fine artist on the contemporary scene. Both Campbell's artwork and tattoo work are informed by timeless trends of "new antiquarian" style, nineteenth-century hand-lettering, kitsch, and classic tattoo flash.”

“Campbell renders fleeting trends into timeless masterpieces not only on canvas and in sculpture, but also on skin. This book captures both, exemplifying how his tattoo work informs his artwork and vice versa. “
Hardcover, 8.5 x 11.75 inches, 208 pages, fully illustrated.
