Tea for two

Thanksgiving was spent on the Oregon coast in Bandon with Spencer's lovely family. We had gorgeous weather, ate so much food, and window shopped our butts off. It was wonderful!


It's nice to be back in Portland, and back at work. Ive been busy working on several projects, and without sharing too much for right now, here are some sneak peaks:

My prints arrived earlier today and they are to be found up for sale in my Etsy shop. The print is $25 + shipping, and measures 11x16".

I also put this cute little lady up for sale.

Is anyone else obsessed with tea this time of the year? I just recently came across this seasonal tea at Trader Joe's, and it's definitely my new favorite. It's a shame it's seasonal. I'll just have to stock up!

What's your favorite?

If anyone is interested in a tea related tattoo, I would love to do this, or something like it.

It's my Friday and I am gonna spend the next three days at home with my love, my pets, my paper,  and my paints. 
I'll be back at work on Sunday. Come get tattooed, before I'm off to Norway for 15 days. So excited!

Until next time,

With the change of seasons and the crappy weather we've had lately, it's had me in a bit of a funk inspiration- wise. I feel like it's been a really long last couple of weeks, but I'm happy to say I finally feel inspired again, and I'm ready for a productive winter. I worked on drawings all day the last couple of days, and I'm excited to go back to work tomorrow. It's gonna be a busy day, and I can't wait!

 Here is what I've been working on the last 24 hours.

I finished a little painting earlier this week. Not sure what to do with this one yet.

I tattooed some cute hot air balloons on Alexa's ribs and she sat like a champ! I wish I had a better photo to share.

My sweet friend Danielle featured me in her blog, Sometimes Sweet this last week. Head over if you wanna know more about me and some of my tattoos.

Making progress

Halloween was fucking crazy. That's all I have to say. A huge thanks to everyone who waited in line all day. You guys are more patient than I'll ever be! I'll let you guys see for yourself how much fun we had!

I went mostly all summer without picking up my paint and brushes, which lead to me feeling pretty bad about my art lately. So far I'm having a lot of fun with this one. If I don't screw this one up ill be making prints next.

I got tattooed by my awesome friend, and co-worker, Ryan Mason last week. My departure for Norway is coming up, which means I get to see my family. I'm super excited to be showing my grandpa (morfar) this one! Thanks Ryan, you're a gem!

I tattooed some lovely newlyweds on their honeymoon here in Portland. Congratulations David and Kristin!

I also did something similar on my friend Caton. Fun stuff!

Other than that I've been keeping my hands and brain busy with knitting. I started a Norwegian sweater for Spencer. A modified version of the traditional Fana. 

Until next time,
