Today at Saved Tattoo here in Brooklyn, Stephanie Tamez, John Sultana and myself will be doing walk in tattoos from 11am until close. As many of you may know I will be moving to Austin Texas in July and working and living there permanently. Throughout the next few months I will be doing a few walk in days to accommodate people who want to get tattooed by me but don’t want something big or too specific. I will only be working from a set of flash designs (mostly unshaded so that i can leave the outcome of the tattoo as decision in the moment of creation) that I have created specially for these days. No appointments, just first come first served. Ill post pictures of the tattoos later in the week but for now here is a sneak at one of the more fun sections of drawing.
I will also post the schedule of the other walk in days later this month.
Any questions please call
Here are some pictures of my painting for Mondo Gallery’s Game of Thrones exhibition, which as I have said in my previous post I am extremely honored to be part of. The exhibition runs until March 14th at Mondo Gallery in Austin Texas. I have included some in progress images (taken with my iPhone) so you could see some of the creation, from sketch to final painting. This piece is ink on paper 29.5 x 40 inches. Titled, Baratheon Black Knight.
Lots and lots have been happening here in NYC as i gear up for Austin Texas………
In the meantime I am honored to announce that I am part of a HBO Game of Thrones Gallery show with some incredible artists, at Mondo Gallery in Austin Texas.
The exhibition opens this Friday……………………
Also I have two prints currently available on Artifact Publishing…… click through for more info…
Based on the album artwork for The Forgiven Ghost In Me, the new album from Neurosis’ Scott Kelly, this print was beautifully produced by Burlesque Of North America………….
This set of 8 11″ x 13″ 1 color Individual Screen prints, are reproductions of illustrations I created throughout 2012, lovingly screen printed by Jay Piera of Claw Hammer Studios……. Dark Blood red ink on ice gray heavy stock paper. Each print is individually signed.
Thank you for your support!!!
I have been selected for a short list as part of a craftsman competition, if you could take the time to head over to the website and vote for me I would really appreciate it………… !
And now back to more important things, I just finished this sleeve….. super happy with the flow and combination of elements……
here are some photographs.
Thank you so much.
I recently created the artwork for The Forgiven Ghost In Me, the new album from Neurosis’ Scott Kelly. This was one of the highest honors I could receive as an artist. Scott is a musical hero of mine and putting images to accompany his aural art has been a humbling experience.
The Forgiven Ghost In Me is an amazing record, you can purchase it here….. neurotrecordings.com
I wanted to share the art in print form but not as a giclee print, this lead to another honored experience, I am excited to be working with Burlesque of North America on a new screen print edition of this art. Burlesque have screenprinted this artwork as a 24 x 18″ 6-color art print and will be publishing it in two different editions.

We split up both of the editions 80/20.
Burlesque have 80 of the variant prints and 20 of the standard prints.
I have 80 of the standard prints and 20 of the variant prints.
I will be selling my copies of the prints at a later date. Stay tuned to my website for updates.
The variant edition differs by using two different metallic inks. While the images don’t appear drastically different on a computer screen, they are definitely discernable to the eye.
Burlesque will be selling the variant edition print and also sets of both prints, but they are not selling the standard edition print on its own.
Below is a series of photographs from 2004-2005 of a back piece I made on a very nice gentleman who then collected more work from Jason Saga R.I.P. after i moved to NYC. This tattoo was alot of fun! Color and lots of Black……..
The next series of images is of a back piece I am currently working on………… I am so grateful that i get to do so much large work… but I want to do more!!!!
It is interesting to watch the evolution of ones own work………………………….
