Extreme Leather Tooling Art

His name is Josh Ellingson. He was discovered” not a long time ago by Miles and Lorrie Brown of “” a custom motorcycles shop in beautiful Alberta, Canada. They first met him at a farmers market where Josh had a small table displaying some of the items he had made in his spare time to enhance his income. Small items like dog collars, watch staps and belts. Immediately they recognized Josh’s untapped raw skills and on the spot commissionned him for a seat & bags for a custom project that Mikes & Lorrie are currently building. Here the result, leather tooling at its best with a quality of details and a style I never seen before (wish I could publish big size pictures). Josh doesnt have yet a website to show his extreme leather tooling art, but you can him at [email protected] or call 403-748-3909.

    Exquisite work! Airbrush alone is a such an art, but combining it with the challenge of tooled leather is doubly tricky. Josh is a master in the making.

    I’d first like to thank Patumwan for taking the time to put some of my work on his site and giving me the chance to reach those people that are looking for one-of-a-kind leather products. I truly appreciate it, my friend! And thanks for all the comments, everyone! If you’d like to see more of what I make or have any questions, feel free to e-mail or call me and I’ll help you out. I make a wide range of things, and will obliterate any challenge in front of me. I especially like tooling and airbrushing, and can copy tattoos, logos, or anything out of your head onto leather. I never had anyone teach me what I can’t make, so I think I can make anything, ha ha! But I’d like to thank everyone again, and I hope to talk to you all soon! Have a great day! Josh (Dr.Skinstitcher).
