Halloween, all saints and dios de los muertos are my favorite holiday season.
I think I might start posting more galleries here of other’s art. I find so much amazing stuff; and I can’t afford all of it, or even have room for it all. I have an extensive art collection by now, as I think everyone should. Buying actual art from the artist is a thrill that just can’t be gotten any other way.
It’s a shame to think that collecting art is sometimes seen as a luxury. I think that art is just as necessary as books, movies, internet. It’s something that enriches your life, makes you think, makes the environment you live in more satisfying.
here are the more recent artworks I’ve been enjoying, along with links and information about the artists. I hope you enjoy them, and if you are the type of person who gives gifts in the winter, keep smaller artisans, artists, and craftspeople in mind. No big department store can sell you the connection that a handmade object contains.

This is from quite some time ago, but I thought I should eventually post it.
It’s hard enough to get tattooed by two people, but our friend from down under sat for the three of us for several hours on his rib cage, which is just over the top.
It’s a northwest-native-style kangaroo aboriginal xray…thing.

"I'm here with Bob, but I love my wife"
burning it at both ends
What a great weekend! Lots of awesome art, prank wars getting started, screwdrivers and paintings. I had a wonderful time, and I also had one of the best valentine’s days ever. The Vancouver show is really fun. I’ve worked it a bunch of years in a row now. Felicia is super sweet and she’s in charge, and Scott does the announcing and contests.
,This year they had a pirate theme, personally I think that should be the theme every damn year, since the hotel is pretty much built for it. The hotel bar has the shittiest music loud ever, every damn night, the worst service, the weakest drinks…but the whole thing is built to look like you are drinking on the deck of a tall pirate ship…so who fuckin cares??? Plus there’s a slew of great artists every year.
Vancouver itself is a gritty little industrial ghost town. I took some time to wander it this year and discovered a wealth of weird industry and strange buildings, pawn shops selling giant 1930′s machine guns (sadly, non functional) and a few odd spots around town. It’s not exactly a haven of beauty but it is a weird little town and fully deserving of the few hours it took me to roam and take some pictures.
It’s the unofficial tradition that everyone goes to the crab shack on sunday after the show ends, and has a bucket of crabs and some beers. This alone make sthe show worth going to, since the raucous atmosphere of a cheeseball crab restaurant after hours cannot be explained- especially when you roll in to a crowd of starving tattooing artists all sitting around fucking with each other. The service in that place, by the way, is excellent.
