Apparently, you can launder money by buying art. I have never had dirty money, so I wasn’t aware of this. (All three of my dollars have been squeaky-clean.) I’m just putting it out there- if anyone has a few millions laying around in torn cardboard boxes behind their drywall, mucky as hell, I’m willing to let you buy my work, then use it to explain where all that cash came from.
I mean, someone’s got to help the needy cash hoarders, right?

a reminder tattoo for a tattoo artist friend of mine. he wanted to remember to slow down, and do more focused work, instead of hurrying up and rushing himself. He is the kind of artist who feels a lot of pressure from his clients, he tends to feel so glad to be tattooing that he forgets that his work is valuable, that his BEST work is worthwhile…that people who want really good tattoos are willing to pay for them, and that he is capable of doing great tattoos, and therefore shouldn’t undervalue his time…
If you undercharge people, you start to feel rushed. it’s inevitable- you end up booked solid for months but barely making ends meet. hurrying up to get that tattoo done in time, in the small amount of time you quoted them for. it’s far better to quote high, to take your time, take that extra hour to do your VERY BEST work on people.
any rate- I love fucking sloths. And this one is particularly classy, too.

Since etsy has begun openly allowing un ethical factory and mass-produced goods, I’ve been casting around for alternative sites to sell through. Since I link here from my etsy shop I won’t be selling the art pieces I sell on etsy elsewhere (yet another way they like to fuck artists over…) but those I am not listing on etsy are available here for now: http://www.freewebstore.org/resonanteye
Unlike etsy, they take no fees, and pay me direct. Also, you can pay with paypal OR google wallet there. So that’s another bonus. Depending on how well it goes I might list more there, I’ll have to see if it’s worth the effort.
Let me know what you think.

I’ve got three secret projects going on- so I can’t post pictures of what I worked on today.
Instead, I’ll post an older photo or two, and ask you all for a little leg up. I’ve been trying to make and sell more non-tattoo art lately, and I need more exposure. If you know of an art site that takes links, add me there, submit my work. If you’re on facebook, add my fan page there. If you twitter, tweet a link to me. Stumble me. Pinterest me. Deviantart post me. Do every kind of dirty internet thing to me and my page. Spread me around…I’m not made of soap, I will NOT wear out.
If you want to buy my stuff, make me an offer. If you’re broke, pimp me out! Share my page and my stuff around- someone’s grandma may want to buy something…and that will keep me going and paying the rent.
If you have a tattoo or picture from me, post a picture of it to your pages and tag or link me. Say my name. I need the leg up, and you guys are my heroes and stalkers and saviors, so I turn to you. Make me famous, children.

last night I did a little drawing, then today I built some more skull mounts.
I like working in a lot of different mediums. It’s odd though, because the work I do in colored pencil is different, very different than my tattoo art, which differs a great deal from my sculputures, which are far far different than my pencil or pen and ink drawings. and of course when I get out the camera my photography is different from all of those.
I sometimes think I might be more successful (or find promoting and selling my work) a lot easier if I narrowed down to just one thing. But then i realize that I really, really like variety. I like doing something different all the time.
I might need help organizing things at times but the work itself is rewarding. So it all comes out even in my mind.
(the pencil art here is up super cheap on etsy; the bone sculptures will be at the speakeasy art show in eugene, in november.)
