The Artlando show is coming up is coming up soon (September 27) and I need prints to go along with my paintings. My buddy Ant came through today for a little shoot to make my acrylic happenings digital. Thanks Ant! I snagged some photos of his healed octopus before he left and headed to Tampa for the Villain Arts Tattoo Convention.
I've been to surf/skate/wake conventions and car expos but never for tattooing. Not a bad show for my first. I don't think I would ever work one, however the experience was very enlightening. It's like being in a secret underworld where everyone is happier than at Disney. It was a sea of humans buying tattoo products, tee's, art and hovering over celebrities of an unknown world. Artists young and old working and hustling and socializing in harmony. Here's to $5 PBR's, pinups and tattoo groupies.
