The beginning of the blog....

So I have finally entered the world of 
blogging and hope to keep it updated, but like everything, there's just not enough time to keep up with it all.
my main purpose of the blog site is to up date the conventions I will be attending as well as projects, art shows, trips etc...  

So for starters I have a small list of events I will be attending so far this year, and may add a few more, but with the arrival of our daughter Olivia Meri, I have to slow the travels a bit.

  Hell City, Columbus Oh. (painting for Innerstate project) May 27-31

  Seattle tattoo expo aug 8-10             
  Paradise Tattoo Gathering Hancock Mass. Sept. 17-20

 I also have a collaborative art show coming up at the artist studio I belong to. (ASIF art studios)  It will have 40 plus local artists showing, and it's all small pieces. 12x12 or smaller, so there will be lots to look at!

The innerstate project is headed up by Guy Aitchison and Michelle Wortman and will be in conjunction with the Hell city convention. Im really excited about this, and the list of artists attending is amazing! There will be a book, and dvd of the event and Ill will be posting more details when it evolves. 

Im working on a few ideas now for the rose project put on by the great folks at Thou art in sheffield England.
All proceeds are going to charities and there will be a postcard book available through them. Ill update when I get more info.

And last for now, I'm honored to be part of a collaborative show at Optic nerve tattoo in Portland Oregon. The title is blood and feathers, and I'm still working out concepts, but I like the subject matter!
