Tattoo inspired moth art prints by Sam Sephton

We came across Sam Sephton’s work on Behance, a great site for discovering digital artists. Sam’s Society6 shop is full of interesting prints (as well as mugs, curtains, floor cushions, etc), but the set that caught my eye was the moth collection.

Sam has these listed on his personal site as Naive Flash inspired moths, they were inspired by a visit to a Tattoo Exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, Cornwall. What I also love are the names he has given each of his creations.

The Moth prints would work well as a collection of several small prints on a wall hung vertically. Of course, this isn’t the only style he works on, I love this print too.
