Part of our mission here at Crooked Howlet Designs is to work with the best artists around the world. Not only does this give us a chance to showcase some mastery in other fields - it also allows us to design jewellery at a level that we truly believe is unrivalled.
We owe a great deal to the designers we have worked with in the past and still today. We are continually humbled by the artwork they produce for us and it is an honour to be able to do what we do best; and build it into our jewellery design.
Meet those involved with us:
Nick Potts is the Crooked Howlet Designs resident artist, responsible for the majority of the art you see in and around CHD.
When needing to be defined, you could get in the ballpark by describing his work as psychedelic.
Hanaro Shinko, German based tattoo artist.
His work sits under the underserving description of, blackwork tattoo design, however this would only give you a rudimentary understanding of the master, Han. A lot of the imagery he uses, has a birth in traditional style and will often give the nod to tribalism tattoo style, with his touch of solid blacks and simplistic lines.
Neil Preston, aka Mr Preston. Tattooist from the Heartless Hands Club, Manchester, UK.
With a base in traditional tattoos, his own interpretation guided the art to evolve into more solid blacks, with less colour and whip shading - which lent itself perfectly to signet engravings.
