Last Minute

I booked an open spot today with this last-minute design. I actually really like how it turned out for being a design done quickly.

Disney Noir – Belle Sketch

I’m staring a new series for tattoos. 😀 Here’s a sketch of the first one.

One of Many

I have been incredibly overwhelmed lately, so I let my sketchbook slide. Time to resume. 🙂 Here’s one of many, many, many things that I’ve done over the past month.


What would happen if I compressed a quarter into two months instead of three? Or operated on a 1/6th of a year timescale? Just a slight compression of goals that let me accomplish two more big projects per year than your average quarterly goal-setter…

Just as an experiment, I’m going to pretend that a year has 6 quarters next year. Even though the “term” is incorrect. I’ll operate under the assumption that we have Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4, Q5, Q6. The person who can iterate the fastest wins.

Jellies 1

My first session on the Jellies sleeve yesterday. I’m loving the spiral flow of the tattoo.

Stained Glass Jellies

I’ve been having a blast plugging in prompts into Midjourney and getting awesome sketches back that I can study and apply to my own compositions.


Midjourney is a tool that I plan to use for…so many things. It’s awesome to look at the outputs for things that I could use in a TTRPG setting.


Midjourney is terrifying. And exciting. I want to see how much it helps my tattooing workflow. So far…it’s looking promising.

Some Gestures

Feeling Guilty

I’m angry with my kids, and they don’t deserve it. I sacrificed a few months of my career to be a stay-at-home dad most of the time, and I regret that decision sometimes.

I thought I could do it all, but I can’t. I need “me” time. I need time to work toward my goals, and it feels like that has been impossible.
