Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed…

No, I didn’t run off and get married.  My excuse for the delay in update is much less inspired!  Just a bit on the busy side with the band and work :)

On the totally-freaking-awesome side of things, I am honored to be working with Steady Clothing on a t-shirt design for the LEGENDARY Sun Record Company!!!  Keep an eye out here or on my Facebook page for it’s arrival!

On with the pix!  Here’s what I’ve been up to!

Howdy gang!  I have some cool stuff to share with y’all from last week!

Mega Update…

So yeah… it’s been forever (again) since I updated this thing… I could ramble off a list of excuses from lack of wanting to spend time on the net, to my computer dying on me.  While those are certainly true, the main reason is that I have just been busy working, playing music and enjoying life!

So on with the show!  Here’s a bunch of stuff I have done since our last meeting:

Rework of an old apprentice tattoo I did... done on a trip to Chicago
