Really fun (and long session) today with my friend Jared! I designed this for him a couple months ago when I was just starting to tattoo, and we finally brought it to life today :) biggest piece I’ve done so far. We’ll be adding color in a few weeks.

Just got a stack of some beautiful prints of a couple of my pieces. 18” ruler for size reference. I’ll be selling these at Sanitas Brewing Co. In Boulder on Friday, but feel free to message me if you’re interested in a print and can’t make it Friday.

This is probably the most involved tattoo design I’ve ever done. Whew! Here you have it - my geometric interpretation of Raphael’s painting “Transfiguration”, depicting an epileptic boy receiving a message from the heavens. It’s going to be a shoulder piece/half sleeve.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the last photos I uploaded of one of my woodburned guitars, so here’s a photo from the same shoot of another one. This is a Fender, and was my very first guitar back in high school. Done with woodburning, watercolor, and a touch of mother of pearl :)

I’m not really into posting photos of myself, but here’s a nice one Ian Glass took of me during our guitar photoshoot. Here’s a face to the name, y’all!

I’ve posted photos of this gem before…but here are some better ones! Shot by my lovely friend Ian Glass. We had a great ol’ time photographing all of my woodburned guitars at once. This is my personal Fender telecaster (a tele deluxe?). Done with woodburning and a touch of acrylogouache paint.  The lyrics wrapping around the side are from the song “Youth” by Daughter, which I find very very inspiring. Thanks for looking guys :)

Horse woodburning on bamboo + watercolor. Turned out rather cubist I will say. This little guy will be for sale at Crema next month for their Year of the Horse group show! I lucked out, it’s the year of the wooden horse :) #woodburning #pyrography #horse #yearofthehorse #chinesezodiac #watercolor #bamboo #painting #cubist #geometric
