NYCC 2013 - your chance for a free $1000 tattoo!

NYCC 2013 - your chance for a free $1000 tattoo!

I'm heading to New York next week for Comic Con! I'll be in Artist's Alley in booth J9 - I'm super excited! I have a special edition print designed just for the convention and I will be debuting a teaser for my comic The Valkyrie's Wode! I've really missed the comic convention scene and I've had to miss it for a few years while I was tattooing and then when I was on the Ink Master TV show - this year I'm starting to get back into it. For the fans that have been going to these conventions all these years and supporting the comic book industry I wanted to do something nice. So... for every print that is purchased, you get your name entered in

Runner up on Ink Master - Season 2

Runner up on Ink Master - Season 2

I go a long time between entries to update... sorry. So I came in second on Ink Master. Not too shabby for someone tattooing for only seven years now. This month, today actually, is the anniversary of when I started tattooing in 2006. Ashley Claypool was my roommate in college at the time, a kick ass artist and tattooist. She saw my art and convinced me to try my  hand at tattooing, of which I was really stubborn and it took her a few months to convince me. I am so grateful that she did. That moment changed my life. I might not have taken the craft seriously at first, it was something that brought me happiness as I tried to figure out the n

It's been a while...

It's been a while...

Well, a lot has gone on since my last entry. I've started my own tattoo shop, started traveling the convention circuit, and have pretty much been working every day since January. I'm starting to get back into illustrating as I get more time back to myself, and I have a lot of freelance work that once I finish I will post. Thanks for following me!

Taking home the gold!

Taking home the gold!

Just got back from the Baltimore tattoo arts convention - it was pretty epic! Dave Nestler was there, lots of amazing tattoo artists, I got a tattoo that won first place for tattoo of the day on Saturday... and I took home FIRST PLACE for the tattoo that I did of Schin Loong's 'A Brief Glimpse'! (~luciole (https://www.deviantart.com/luciole)) The tattoo was entered in the XL female color category and there was some steep competition! Can't believe it.... :thumb177736297: :thumb137232127: The best weekend of my life.

My next big project

My next big project

I'm working on a tattoo for my friend Kylee - we are recreating Luciole's painting 'A Brief Glimpse' as a tattoo! We have 7 hours in so far, and another 30 to go... this is going to be my masterpiece! If you want to see updates in real time add me on Facebook! Link This is going to be GREAT! Thanks to Luciole for letting me try this crazy awesomeness! Check out her art here: http://luciole.deviantart.com/

Workin!

Workin!

Haha, I'm not really that good at keeping up with journals... Started working at Jester's Court tattooing in December. So far I'm loving it - have gone to a few conventions and have my sights set on winning some trophies! Gotta hell of a back-up on times for clients to get tattooed so working couldn't be better. I decided to take a break from college life again - financial stuff. Also time, working full and working full aren't quite mixing. I'm going to upload some of my newer works over the next few days as soon as I can get the pics from my boss. He has the camera LOL! Let me know what you guys think!

Going back

Going back

I'm going back to school for animation. Graphic Design, while satisfying to finish work and GET work for doing stuff like menus, etc., I'm not sure if it is right for me. I was originally going to go for animation so I'm going to jump on this and work my butt off. Hopefully I will get some better skills out of this... conceptually...

Christmas and new jobs

Christmas and new jobs

Projects: 1) Human Sonic for Anna IP 2) Saiyuki Cast for Anita IP 3) Manga Next Commission of Cloud Strife IP 4) FanGirl T-shirt from Manga Next I WILL SEND IT I PROMISE!! 5) Ethan: 5 page comic (1/5 IP) Working again... at an Ad company. It's okay, not really any time for me to do stuff I want to do (i.e. draw) but I'm trying to make the effort. I picked up a set of Tarot cards the other day - really fun. I want to try my hand at designing a set... wishful thinking perhaps. ~Shinigami-sama

Orphan Works Bill *URGENT*

Orphan Works Bill *URGENT*

ANY ARTIST THAT wants copyright law to exist in the future needs to look into this. The government is looking to pass this bill that will take away our rights to any work that we have done, EVER. The purpose of the bill is supposed to open up art works that the originator has died and help museums without having to worry about getting sued by an artist. In REALITY, if a piece of work isn't registered (the artist must pay to register it) anyone can use it without paying the artist. The Illustrator's Partnership is opposing this bill, if you want to look into their actions against the Orphan Works Bill, go here: http://www.illustratorspartnersh
