For no particular reason, I decided that I wanted to start blogging again. After a year and a half of drawing every day, some part of me misses writing. I thought this would be a nice way to put the musings of my ever-rambling mind into a more organized and understandable format.
With this blog, I'd like to: solidify my thoughts, help develop conceptual backgrounds for the artistic styles that I am currently exploring, and give credit to the artists, writers, tattooers, and craftsmen that are currently fueling my fire. There is a huge amount of information/inspiration that I pull from when developing my artwork, so I thought it would be nice to show some respect to those sources.
Hense, a blog is born.
Portland Tattoo Expo
I just got back from the Portland Tattoo Expo, which I attended with Ian, Britt, and Bridget (fellow tattooers from Blaque Owl Tattoo). I've been to a bunch of tattoo expos in the past, but this was the first expo that I've ever tattooed at! It was suuuuper fucking fun and I met a lot of awesome people. Also, I did a couple of rad tattoos -- So no complaints there!
Also!! Ian and I won 2nd place for "best sleeve"... so, FUCK YES to that! Thanks SO much for the amazing work Ian, I am beyond proud to wear this work for the rest of my life!!
All in all, an awesome time. Can't wait for next year!
