My name is Alex Plunkett, better known as Duck Plunkett on Instagram.
I am half Irish half Catalan and I live in the Poblenou neighbourhood in Barcelona. I started drawing when I was 5 years old and motivated by my father I started studying art and illustration from a young age.
Since I was little I was also very interested in music and the world of music, especially what attracted me the most was punk, and since I barely knew how to play instruments and I didn’t have the money to afford a guitar, I drew on musical topics. I used to draw my favourite artists and things related to punk, also fashion and clothes, since the subcultural movement gives a lot of range. That later would be the cornerstone of my work.
When I was in high school I started to get interested in tattoos and when I was 19 years old I got a colleague to lend me 300 euros to buy tattoo material (I never returned the money), during the 13 years I have been working as a tattoo artist I have dedicated myself more in the traditional American Old School style, and it has evolved over the years since I have been introducing illustration and comic plus the things I like, music (Punk, Oi!, ska etc), beer and football.
I also made my debut in the comic world with a character named Casual Harvey who is focussed on the world of Casual Skinhead football fan.
You can find me at Midnight Tattoo in the Born neighbourhood in Barcelona, and also, thanks to work, I travel a lot both in the Peninsula and in Europe
