For no.11 in our 5×5 series I’ve chosen Kelly Smith. Working out of Sheffields’ Five Magics Tattoo, Kelly does really strong, bold traditional work that has really caught my eye as of late and is well worth checking out.
You should also check out the previous 5x5s with Scott Move, Luxiano Street-Classic, Eterno8, Joe Ellis, Alex Boyko, Acetates, Cheyenne Sawyer, Ryan Shaffer, Joe Chatt and Clare Frances.
