Beautiful Woodcuts by Love Hawk

David Hale is an illustrator, a mixed media artist, a tattoo artist and a founder of Love Hawk Studio based in Athens, GA. He is internationally known for his unique and creative artwork. Hale started his artistic journey when he was in kindergarten, he used to draw with whatever he could find. "I remember drawing with pieces of pine bark from the driveway.” Hale shared here.

Later in his life, art became an significant part of his life. At the age of 13, he got interested in the art of drawing tattoos. He began drawing tattoos for his friends, and the day he turned 18 he got his first tattoo.

His designs are inspired by nature, Native American symbols and traditional tattoo themes that revolve around organic patterns to animals. The series of woodcuts feature owls, serpents, hawks, deer, and birds on beautiful birch wood panel. You can find originals and limited edition prints in his online store.
