FRANK DANIEL DUARTE
"You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig."
My artistic philosophy is very similar to what Blondie told Tuco in that desert. There are "tattoo artists" and there are "artists". Generally, when a person delves into the world of tattooing, you get taught a certain way and all you know is the tattoo world. I was fortunate enough to start my career outside of tattooing. Growing up, in southern California, I always had a strong passion for illustrating. Because of that passion, I started Seventh Tower almost a decade ago, making crappy drawings for local metal bands to slap on their t-shirts. Which, ultimately grew into a one-man world wide illustration business, providing artwork for bigger bands, but also sticking to my roots and catering to where I began, the local acts. But my passion for illustrating is always a restless battle. I always have to find a new way to express it. Any way I can try something new I dive into it. From providing artwork for children's books to designing logos for corporations to tattooing to creating my own graphic novel, "Gravehill". They are all a tools, as an artist, to show the world what I'm about.
