Amazing Body Art Illusions by Craig Tracy

Born and raised in New Orleans La, USA, Craig Tracy has always been an artist. A graduate with honors from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Craig was a professional Freelance Illustrator by the age of twenty.

“I actually hated being an Illustrator. I was so disappointed by just how mind-numbingly boring and lonely it all was. The isolation created a cabin fever vibe and the fact that I was painting mostly commercial and industrial images seemed empty to me.”

Six years later he retired from Illustration altogether to venture back into painting murals, doing colorful drawings, t-shirt designs, and just about any amazing art possible.

“It really clicked, from the very first time that I painted a face, it was strangely powerful. I later realized that I had quite literally fallen in love with body art. I personally didn’t take body painting seriously for five or six years. The day that I finally asked myself ‘why’, why I liked painting on people so much, that led me to… Well… What if I take this unique art form seriously? That one question and a quick Google search changed the course of my life.”
