odds & ends

8.22.19

Took this last week and half off from tattooing to kick back a little bit. I was able to get some time in on my tabletop game, revise the ruleset, make changes to customizable character power-ups and abilities and also got a website for it, though I haven’t launched it, so I’ll post that soon.

I’ve also got new tattoo images of finished as well as on-going projects, a new machine build and other new works that I’m going to be adding to the website. Again, I’m going to figure out an archival system for tattoos pics (there’s too many fun ones to choose from) to keep up on the website as new projects are posted.

It’s been an intense last couple of weeks: big tattoo projects, new tool builds, traveling out to California to name a couple of things. No complaints though; it might all happen quick and heavy, but the memories and experience gained are priceless.

  

Trips to Cali always go too quick.. Bay Area has always been a favorite of mine. Until next time..

Exploring sub-categories for the website to show other completed tattoos and a way to show pics of art concepts, illustrations and other renderings without becoming confusing for site navigation. Of just tattoos and illustrations, I have a vast amount of material; so I’m figuring out how to keep all that nice and concise. More to follow…

Been having a blast doing things lately, but my head is elsewhere right now..

I f*cking love playing Elite: Dangerous.. damn, the creators of this game got this down to a science. It’s not even so much a game, but a simulation. If you like flying around in space, getting into ship-to-ship combat, doing espionage missions (or sabotage missions), landing on planets, making money through trading goods and even risking dying from hypothermia or suffocation due to your ship’s systems shutting down when you armed your weapons because you were a dumbass and those weapons drew too much power from your ship’s core when you installed them, then this is for you. It’s like a good sci-fi novel that you can cozy up to, relax and get lost in.

Been enjoying my D&D campaign at the shop a lot.. gotta say, never thought I’d enjoy playing a cleric as much as I have (albeit, he’s a Lizarfolk, which makes it waaaaay more fun)....and here’s a little mech I made out of printer paper, because mechs are dope. Until next time..

The website has been completely revamped. All portfolio and art galleries could be subject to change as I develop archives for imagery. I’m considering putting together a concept art book for folks to look through at the shop, on top of my physical portfolio that I already have.

A lot of stuff has been in progress lately and I’m looking forward to releasing new works and material shortly. I’ll still be using Instagram for communication and updates.

The “odds & ends” section will be updated as regularly as possible, hopefully once a week or every two weeks, with new info on current projects, thoughts, theories and other randomness.
