Conceptual Illustrations and Projects in Residence by Jason Sturgill

Jason’s work is always well-considered and concept-driven, but he also maintains a sense of playfulness in what he does.

In the project documented in the video below (and subsequent related project for a residency at Broken City Lab), he curated a selection of artists to design tattoos in response to the museum’s collection that were then offered out free for the public to have permanently emblazoned on their skin.

Take a look at the video and Jason’s site for more information.
