WORK PROCESS

 

Surplus Archeology:

 

I pay close attention to where I get the bags from. I handpick them myself and later wash them with care. I buy through different military surplus sellers around the world.  I also pick vintage items that have written things on them, holes or traces of rust, which make them even more beautiful and authentic. Second, I also paint on luxury leather goods. Military art belong anywhere, as long as it well done!

 

 

 

Inspiration:

 

88th Co. is mainly inspired by military designs from the WWI and WWII. I created my own story around my favorite airplanes and designs I have seen in books or museums. I sometimes do pieces with real historical research, some are just from my imagination. However, you're in good hands, because I'm a little military geek!

 

 

 

 

Painting Method:

 

I always do a digital hand painted version of the item on Photoshop. Later, I hand paint everything on the canvas (fabric or leather). It does take many hours to research, draw, paint and dry the design on the canvas. I use different tools to make my paintings: Angelus Paint, brushes, markers and airbrush.

Your Item is unique!

Why 88th?

 

I think the number 8 is a cool design on its own. It has many different meaning to people, such as infinity and so on. I love my eights! They are also an homage to very special people in my life!

 

Who am I?

 

My name is Sonia T., I’m a digital artist and graphic designer. I always had this big passion for custom design. Ô Porteur and 88th Co. are my canvases for my geeky passions! Enjoy!
