So excited about my trade with Elias from Lemolo baggage. Here we are visiting Elias in studio.


LOOK at this amazing pack I had made for Ash. Perfect for commuting, adventures, motorcycling and the like. Thanks Elias!!! I’ve had my backpack for awhile now and couldn’t be more pleased. Please check out Lemolo bags. I’ve never seen nicer work. http://lemolobaggage.com/

Well, hi. This is my last blog post before I go on a brief respite out of town.  I have so many pictures to share, so I’ll spare you the words and get right to it.

I have been tattooing A LOT lately and I’ve gotten to do/start some pretty rad projects…

Cat with umbrella. More like this please!

Friendship tattoos with rad ladies.

Started 2 massive cover ups last week that are both really exciting. Bye old tattoos.


beer thirty.

carrot tattoo! tiny bunnies!

Cera came from Seattle to get this done. Thanks Cera!

Kinda bloody.

One day I got cancelled on and so I did a walk in. I still got it y’all!

Kirsten tattooing Kirsten!

Oyster mushrooms. These will get color someday.


This was a super fun translation of a print by my client, Megan Hanley. Rabbits superimposed above Mt. Hood. She is walking in the Mercury fashion show next week and also has an opening at a gallery in the pearl for first Thursday this month. Check it out!

TREATS!!! Thank you Keegan and Carmen.

I’ve only had 2 days off in the last 2 weeks. One of the days I did this.

this picture is for my coworker Kirsten. ❤

I love my Danner hiking boots. Thanks Derek!

Then, the following week I did this.

pretty excited.

Have I mentioned how much I like to be outside? It is by far my most favorite thing in the whole world. Get out there people, its spring in Oregon!

Don’t worry, I’m not forgetting cat pictures.

Sometimes its hard to get out of bed.

Ok, cool. Now that I’ve officially bombarded you all with a million pictures, I think I’ll get goin’. I’m going to be on VACATION for the next couple weeks so I wont be in the shop or emailing at all. If I owe you one, don’t worry, I’m going to write about fifty emails before I leave. Also, when I return from vacation I will have had a birthday. Feel free to leave me birthday presents on my desk. Go outside!!! XO
