Here's a couple of tattoos I finally got to photograph. The space scene will actually be a full half sleeve soon. We are going to add more on the inside. Possibly a space telescope or satellite. The magnolia flowers are on my friend Samantha, she requested them in black and gray.

This first painting I did using oils. It's only my second finished oil painting, I truly enjoyed working on this piece. First because of the challenge and second because I learned how to move and play with the paint during these sessions with this piece of canvas. I've started some new pieces which I will post progress pics soon. Keep checking back. The next piece I did was done with watercolors and prismamarkers. Fun little tattoo styled piece. cheers !
I worked on a new banner for the Tried and True Expo. I spent more time than I had imagined, but loved doing it, especially for it being of such a large scale. I rarely paint at this size, perhaps I'll start. I have this hanging at home so I can actually put a few more hours into it before the next convention, which is in Toronto next month. Again lots of fun to do.
So this past weekend I had a great time at the Orlando show. It's held in a super nice hotel,The Rosen Centre, with a list of top artist from around the states. Getting this many people in one room is always impressive and inspirational. Good times, good times indeed. And as usual I left the convention satisfied and excited that I was able to meet new people and spend time with old friends. I worked on some cool "in progress tattoos" which should be all finished within the next several months. I'll keep ya posted. Here's a few pics of our booth. Enjoy !
