Sorry for the Lapse…
I realized that it has been quite a while since I have been here. I’m not going to make excuses. I’m going to show you some of what I have been up to since then.
Had another session on Frank’s back. Made this for a friend on our day(s) off. Got some (mostly) healed shots of this kokopelli tattoo. Made this memorial tattoo for a great guy. Put the last piece in place on Eric’s Buddha/Mara tattoo/sleeve. I can not tell you how much I enjoyed working on this tattoo. I learned a lot and got to hang out with a really nice guy (thanks Eric!). He takes really good care of his tattoos both while they are healing and in protecting them from the sun so I know this tattoo will look good for always. We will get together soon to get healed photos of this as well.
Tattooed a little more on Mariah’s Alice in Wonderland sleeve (adding “Drink Me” to the already healed “Eat Me”). Worked on Dina’s Rainbow Goblins sleeve (or Lucky Little Life sleeve if you prefer). It has been an honor getting to know Dina while working on this – can’t wait to see her again. Tattooed this owl on the lovely Jill (who has been WAY too long in between visits). Hoping to add a bit more to it the next time she can swing by this way. Got some healed photos of the upper portion of Bob’s Cthulhu sleeve (the bottom is too tan right now to photograph well – Ill have to grab him in the winter!). Took some in stage photos of Mariah’s Alice in Wonderland sleeve. Went back in later and filled in all those little in between spaces.
Worked on the Bear and Bunny Paintings more. Started another painting. Went to Open Figure Drawing session at Steve Carpenter’s Studio and painted. Got in another brief session on the Bear and Bunny (mostly finished here) and worked on Jesse as Delirium again. Went back to figure drawing session and painted again. Went to figure drawing again and yep, you guessed it, painted again.
Spent some time defacing currency. Got a tattoo from Joe C at the Greece shop (White Tiger Tattoo) Went with the family to go and see the Heron Rookery in Sterling. These pictures don’t come close to doing this place justice. Absolutely amazing!!! Went camping and whitewater rafting. Got chased out of the 1000 acre swamp by some really mean mosquitoes, but not before I got some nice dragonfly photos. (I’m really sorry Michelle, I WILL remember bug spray next time). Tore the shop in Greece apart and redid the floor (including some mis-adventures in floor poly). Watched the sun set (a bunch of times, not just this once). Got some other people to draw on money also. (These are for the Jefferson Project) Had a weekend visit with some friends (and their kitties). Which included a shopping excursion to Pandora’s Box in Milford. Some more money got drawn on.
Which I think brings us pretty close to current.
Hopefully I will be able to post more regularly again and I apologize to anyone who’s mobile couldn’t handle that many photos.
