WHO THE FUCK IS SINDY SINN...?

A hard-working silly-bugger. My illustrations have been used to brand countless bands, bars and beers. From the full branding of restaurants and bars, to gigposters, apparel design and every form of illustrative branding.  I'm the Head Illustrator and Co-Founder of Snake Eyes Studios in Newtown, our studio is within the compounds of the Young Henrys beer brewery (it's amazing). We listen to Slayer and drink a lot of coffee. I have an obsession with skulls, monsters, Dad-jokes, red meat and stuff with eyeballs. I also love swearing. I toast my sandwiches. I prefer chunky markers to biros. And I'm always down for silly-business.

Process

- First I roughly sketch things (sometimes very roughly). 
- Sometime I'll do this by hand, other times in Photoshop with a low-opacity brush.
- I'll then drop the sketch into Adobe Illustrator, where I trace, tighten and refine my sketch.
- To do this I use my Wacom Intuos tablet. And within illustrator I use a tool called the Blob Brush. 
- Almost all of my artwork is vector and drawn with the intention of screenprinting and world-domination.
