Portfolio updated…

Specifically, the tattoo gallery; there are now two sub-albums now: designs for myself and designs for other people. Also the designs are in order now, from newest to oldest.

I’ve now got 4 designs completed for other folks. Two of them are recent; I did one for my friend Bronwyn when she decided she wanted to hang out with me, in Portland, when I was getting my new one done on my recent trip. I also did another one for my friend Nancy, who was one of my hosts on the trip. I like doing these for people who want them. Most of the time I won’t charge, if we are friends (you can insist on paying me if you want and I’ll graciously accept it, but I am not looking to make any part of a living with this), and contrary to all the rumours, I will work in color for other people (it’ll still be abstract, but hey, color). So, if you really want a tattoo design from me, and you really will get it applied, feel free to get in contact with me about this.

Oh look, a blog post.

So, yeah.

Feeling a bit down again. and I have figured out why. I feel like I’m straying a bit form parts of my core – the things that I self-define as that make up a significant chunk of my identity. In short, I have not been doing any art, and my local circumstances and internal excuses for not doing art are distressing me rather a lot. The house, including my workspace, is a huge, untidy mess, and that mess is almost 100% my doing. I have many, many excuses for it, some of which even hold water for more than a few seconds, but none of them useful – because I really, really need to get this stuff dealt with so that I can get working again. This sort of thing also leads to me feeling a bit off in my social interactions (whether anyone else notices this or not, I feel this way – and if any of you have noticed anything amiss, and need to talk about anything, please do contact me directly). I have many other excuses as well, but they all boil down to, in one form or another, “waaah, I don’ wanna do X  right now” and then procrastinating (which seems pretty lame for the adult I claim to be). The various forms of “X” are pretty widespread, so I feel that I’m spinning my wheels in lots of areas, and quite likely disappointing people; I’m certainly not happy with myself right now.

So, going to work on that, basically starting now – seems as good a time as any.

Hey, look! Over here! I’m still alive… in fact I just updated my online portfolio with my first piece from this year.

It’s right here. I also just completed an album cover for my OSO Veronica; the album will be out toward the end of the month, and it’s good.

I really do intend to use this as a writing space, and actually have pithy and worthwhile things to say. Eventually. I do miss writing more than 140 characters at a time, so perhaps it’ll actually happen.

Next up is sorting/culling/posting photos from a recent SF Zoo trip. Over the next week I’m going to add portfolio albums for commercial work and my tattoo designs. I’ll post when I’m done.
