Just started sculpting my first chess set. Started with the pawn of course. Check it out. Im sculpting it in digital 3D and then going to send it to get printed in 3D... Once I get them done I will be releasing limited edition hand painted full sets. Might even sculpt a bad ass board to go with it. Im getting quicker with the software im using. So much fun!!!! more pics to come.

Im back! damn,... was gone for a while. I cant believe how busy I have been and still kept my sanity. Had a solo art show and huge tattoo convention to prepare for... I survived and did really well at both shows! I am going to be posting a lot of new stuff in the next few days and weeks ahead. I got so many new tattoo pics and art pics to post it would just be too much to post in one sitting...so heres the first set. This is some of the work ive done recently at Studio 21... which by the way, is the most bad ass shop ive ever seen or worked for by far!!!! Anyway enjoy... more to come.

Finally! got some new art done. Had a few art shows this month. One is an all black and white themed show so I did 3 black ink paintings. They were so much fun to paint I think Ill do more!!! and I did 2 smaller oil paintings that are just weird....but fun stuff.
I moved into the new shop! I love it to death! Everyone there is super amazing and very nice and professional. Its the best tattoo shop Ive ever seen or worked in. Studio 21 is my new home. Expect to se some new tattoo pics soon. Ive already done some cool new stuff! enjoy.

So I decided to get back into 3D... yes yes... a little known fact is that I have a college degree in computer animation. I did it for a few years and just couldnt get work....so I ended up doing graphic design and then stumbled into tattooing... thats another story. ANYWAYS.... I am getting into 3D sculpting. I tried getting into a few programs. First I tried Zbrush... good stuff but couldnt really get into it. I tried Mudbox...made by the trusty 3D Studio max peeps but that was even worse! I then tried a program my friend Dylan suggested... 3D Coat. It was love at first touch... i know that sounds creepy but my love for 3D came rushing back when I broke out my wacom tablet and starting sculpting in 3D with ease!!!! I did a few weird faces at first just to get used to the tools... Its so damn addicting!! So I bought the program and installed it then made a list of all the art ive done that could probably work as a 3D sculpture to start out... My first serious project is turning my "Evacuation" face with the eyeball in his mouth into a full 3D sculpture that I can send to a company once Im done and they can print in 3D and send me the actual physical copy of it! God bless technology. I embrace it with every physical and mental extremity. Here is my first project done with 3D Coat. Its not done yet but im getting pretty good at the program. More to come. Not too sure what material this will be made of but I will definitely be getting a few test copies made in resin (plastic). Check it out.... still learning...
im still adding weird texture and gross stuff! its so much fun...

I did both tattoos with no outlines, painterly style... All done with a 9mag and 15mag. So much fun... I definetly love my job and love it when people let me do cool shit like this. :)

Ive been busy doing a lot of work for other people. Freelance work can get hectic while pulling a fulltime job. I kinda got overwhelmed for a few weeks... but im slowly getting back to regular life. I havent done any art for myself in a while....its been too long. I find it harder to control my anxiety issues when i cant work on my own art and relax a little. I even had a food poisoning episode in the middle of all this so i was drained and sick for a little bit. So... I will be posting a lot of stuff here in the next few days if i can just sit down and go through my camera and computer. Heres the first batch of stuff:
I got commissioned to do a background painting for this bad ass guy who blows artistic glass pieces. He got this hand blown glass piece put on the cover of High Times...i actually believe you can smoke out of it!!! so he is going to be making limited edition prints of it... background art done by me.
