All six sheets of flash for the weekend!

I’ll be taking walkins to do any of these tattoos, every day, all weekend at the evergreen convention, in springfield oregon.






DNA, and some coloring.

Did a really, really fun DNA tattoo today, in the sort of book-illustration style I love. Also I started painting the black in the flash sheets I’m bringing to the Evergreen convention in March.

Have some photos!


Thanks Sly! So. Much. Fun.

If I get to do the whale/geranium pot, the lady with the burny church head, the suffragist and the bat, I will be content.


making gigantic sheets of flash.

I want to make it possible for people to look around at a bunch of things and pick something; to let people be spontaneous, and to give them ideas. So I’ve been doing this rather than putting a ton of smaller drawings in books to flip through.

These big sheets are pretty common in tattooing. We call them porkchop sets or pick and sticks, flash wallpaper. When a tattoo artist wants to do a bunch of small-to-medium sized things in a short time, they’ll often be using a sheet like this for people to choose a design from. You can see them pretty often when shops do a friday the 13th sale, or events similar to that.

(if you like something you see, hit me up at the evergreen convention. I’ll have these with me and be ready to roll! or email me, too.)

spending a few winter days in Seattle!

all healed up!

I’m here until tomorrow night, and I’m having a great time.
I’ll be at Laughing Buddha taking walk-ins until tomorrow night at ten; I come back through in February too.

I’m spending all my off time getting ready for the Evergreen Convention in March. SO STOKED. After that convention I’m going to be in Oregon for a few weeks too, working. Can’t wait to see all my people there. The convention is a big thing for me though- I’ve been feeling like I need more learning time, and there are some seminars going on that weekend I’m really looking forward to taking. I always feel like I could be better at my work and sometimes I get really dejected, and feel like I’m not making progress. Having a teacher here and there banishes that feeling pretty fast though!

I really don’t like winter, but this year has been ok so far despite all the chilly moments. It’s been icy and snowy in Spokane but Seattle is just chill and damp, how I like it. If you live in the ice-bound states, I’m sending you an e-cup of cocoa.
