January 2019

 

Happy New Year! 2018 was a really busy year for me, and this next one is shaping up the same way. Read below for the first few announcements of 2019.

 

This month at Davis gallery in my home city of Austin TX, I’ll be showing several recent paintings and a few older ones from my long running Blood Rituals series. If you’re in the area swing by the gallery to see them, along with some amazing paintings by several local artists.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This month is the release of my instructional video series produced by Jake at Fireside Tattoo Network and podcast. He and his crew filmed me completing an alla prima still life painting using classical realism techniques, and explaining in great detail my every move and decision throughout the course of painting. This has become an 11 video series that you can purchase now, and will be released with a special price for a limited time only! Buy it here.

Immediately following the convention, and also in St. Louis, is the Explorer Tattoo Conference, another exciting learning opportunity where I’ll be presenting a tattooing seminar along with some other talented tattooers.
