My name is Dave Davenport, but I am sometimes known as "Dogspunk", and sign my artwork "DDOG". I've been tattooing since 1996 and making comic books since 2004. In a past life I animated video games. To view galleries of my work, visit my website and click on the teeth menu on the left...

cover art for Hard to Swallow comics vol.2 #1

So i am still hoping to get this thing done for sdcomicon next month. Just finished the front cover art… it took a while to come up with an idea I liked. I am working on the logo and the final interior pages now.

I am also considering advertisers to help with printing costs. Anyone have any ideas? Anyone want to donate or sponsor a page? Buy original page artwork from the book?

Tattoo SCAM

so occasionally I get an e-mail like this:
This is Brad Scott. I want to book for tattoo drawings in your studio for group of 10, we are spending our vacation in your country for three weeks in the month of Sept 2010 and in line with our plans we need to draw tattoo in your studio.
We need two tattoos each on the chest and back for images like scorpion, flower, house or any beautiful image that can be good in tattoos as your suggestions will be appreciated.
Kindly confirm the best dates for you in the month of Sept 2010 and how many days it will take you to finish the tattooing for the group of 10 persons booking and also confirm if your firm will be able to handle this.
Awaits your email,
Brad Scott”
I researched the e-mail address and the top result is a page titled
Known Scammer Names used in Art Scams.
It’s pretty amazing the lengths people go to, and still ask for something dumb that gives it away like “house or any beautiful image that can be good in tattoos”.
Or maybe beautiful house tattoos are the next big thing?
