Ultimate Guest Spot

photo 5 (3)


The New Year has brought some exciting accomplishments to Into the Woods Gallery! We rang in the New Year with an awesome 3-day run at the best tattoo convention in Miami, Tattoolapalooza. With all the talent there we had no choice but to smuggle some of it back to the studio!!

Over the week of January 6th-12th we managed to put together a guest spot worthy of the title “EPIC GUEST SPOT!!! What resulted was a veritable explosion of talent that the tattoo industry has never seen under one studio’s roof.  Each day was more incredible than the last.

 Lessons were learned, ideas were exchanged and many laughs were had by all.  We had so much fun we’re planning to do it again in July of 2014.  Stay tuned for updates!

Bio:   Jeff Dekal is the cover artist for Marvel’s Journey Into Mystery. His other comic credits include Superior Spiderman Inhumanity, and work for Valiant, Creature Entertainment, and Cosmic Times. He has provided artwork for numerous musicians such as Mayday, Wrekonize, Royce da 5’9, Joe Budden, and DJ Burn One.

Born and raised in South Florida, Jeff spends much of his life producing illustrations bordering urban and uncanny. The introduction to graffiti while he was in high school gave the first serious meaning to Jeff’s art and is also where he adopted his alias, Dekal. After being educated about art history, he was inspired to stray from the characters and letters of graffiti and focus more on figurative art. Jeff’s figures can sometimes exist in an untouchable state because that status is nonexistent in this world. We are vulnerable in many ways and can be touched at any moment. Since Jeff has the ultimate control of his art though, he would rather see his figures in a timeless state as opposed to a mundane everyday type of situation.
