Ruckus.

Magazine editor Mikey flew in from Toronto for block lettering from yours truly, across the back of the head. A tricky task since I was alongside some heavy hitters like Lil’ B & Q Tattoo but stoked on the outcome, have a look…

Saved.

Raul from Reno, Nevada for today’s appointment. A female guardian angel in the inner bicep, to overlook him at all times.

Much love for coming down from The Biggest Little City In The World…

Exodus.

Today we had Matt from Santa Cruz, come down for some custom letters down the forearm. A huge supporter of the fine line black and grey movement, this abstract poet and film student is in it – to win it! We are goin’ in for a full sleeve in the upcoming months, so be sure to check back to see what we conjure up. Thanks again to all our supporters from Northern Cali.

Divine.

Eric flew in from the rocky mountain state of Colorado, for a serious two-day sitting. The beginning to a religious sleeve, we started with the Pieta statue of Mother Mary. The Holy Spirit as well, in the form of a dove.

Educate.

Light air and a breeze ruffles the leaves on this crisp mid-day in April. As I decide to visit the nearby community college and document another Emigdio Vasquez illustration inside the walls of the school’s building.

Sorrows.

A glance at today’s sitting with Ryan from Long Beach. Inspired by Glenn Arthur, a custom distressed girl for his one of a kind handshot. Thanks for another enjoyable day at the shop, brother.

Z.O.N.E.

Today was a great final session on Drew with this inner bicep statue. A different approach with some bold linework and stippled background. The conclusion-a very fun project, indeed.

And a definitely great soundtrack I recently discovered had me in the Z.O.N.E.

Justin shot me some instrumental mixes from Bonobo, a British DJ from Brighton, who I definitely recommend to all my artist friends trying to stay on focus…
