fasty mcquickerson update



Did a super fun elbow piece, sorry the picture is distorted due to the elbow region. It was a lot of fun though. Got to stipple, whip and more! Autumn sat like an absolute trooper.

Nothing else new except the start of this painting! But I'm not explaining until finished (however there isn't much to explain unless you like pigeon skulls and hands)

I have been a bad blogger lately, so I apologize. To make up for it (and for the time being while I don't have much to post)here are some crazy shoes -







All these shoes were found at ifshoescouldkill.com I wanted to share them everyone, there are far more insane ones found there too

!!!!wowow

My title is really all I keep thinking about so I had to don it that. In other news:


A quick post of a finished (maybe) rhino painting. I would have more tattoo photos to offer but my camera died... so a mobile photo of the piece will have to do for now!

"It's a matter of loving it, not understanding it"

A couple new tattoos to post, tiny ones - but hey, there's nothing wrong with a small tattoo.

Maranda, Kayla and their mother got these pink bows on their knuckles. I think it was a pretty clever idea, still very dainty and cute.



Also one daughter and the mother got this phrase "la bella vita" on them. I'm happy to do font like this. I used to despise doing font, now I really love it. Well, I love it when people will let you be creative with it on some level.




Lately I've been taking to Rhinos. Working on a rhino painting. I've always had a lot of trouble with painting and letting things just "loosen up". I keep my hand and my brush too tight, I get too literal with the tension and then I get frustrated. I started it, it still seems very "tightened" but I'm definitely going to just let go and be I guess almost more "free" with the brush and paint next time I work on it. I definitely understand the meaning of gesture drawings, I'm so glad I know what those are - they're lifesavers.



In other It'sPointlesslyAllIKeepThinkingAboutNews : I have finally been swinging around to the Antique shops that are a stones throw from the Shop. I don't know WHY I am not there more often. There is so much stuff, it's seriously overwhelming and amazing at the same time. Now I found this stupid awesome hair bow that I will never Ever wear (more than likely) and it's all I keep thinking about. And if I don't buy it I'm going to have this little tiny regret of a bow dancing around invading my dreams for the next I don't know however many weeks. Call me dramatic but I think it's a girl thing, and I had to get it out there so I don't explode. Cross your fingers it's still there! Haha.

I get to tattoo a gargoyle today, I am actually very, very excited! Adios

A few highlights of last weeks work!

This was Carolines first tattoo, it says "I will be heard" (from the oh so awesome Abraham) It was a good ole time.


Some birdy silhouettes and font on Sarah.

Finally finished Christines Cherry Blossoms! (Some parts are still healing)


Also got to finish Tavis' roses yesterday! Something I had been waiting patiently to finish! Who doesn't love doing roses?


OH. And check out these disgustingly awesome shot glasses (I think?) that I got at the thrift store for a meer .75 cents!!!! And thanks to Domo for modeling them for a hot second.



They will probably just sit and collect stuff but this was one risky purchase I couldn't resist.
