After almost a year this sketchbook “The Rose Book” went to the printer. Thanks to Tim Hendricks and Guy Waisman for really helping me pull it together. For its grand release, I will be selling it at the Ink & Iron this year on June 7th, 8th, and 9th, which is a great place to pick it up and have it signed by some of the guys in it. It’s 100 pages and will go for only $80.00
One of the first tattoos I did in Western Australia, I call it “a rose from the future” because it is a day later here in Australia. It’s been a honor to hang at Five Star Tattoo here in Fremantle, WA with the legendary Ricky Luder and his great crew!
This was one of a few favorite moments from the “Left To Right” art show, it was a moment I actually sat down for a second and took a minute with a few dear friends. Sabina Kelly is one of those dear friends. She is a very lovely hard working mother of three, whom I’ve grown to have great respect and admiration for. Sabina is a non stop traveling international Pin Up Model, as well as a host/judge of a television show called Best Ink on the Oxygen network, and a all around great human. I hope the very best for her in all her endeavors and I am proud to call her friend.
I have the pleasure of calling this man a friend. Tito Deler aka “The Original Harlem Slim” enjoy these great shorts done by PF Flyers Authentic American Style

Last night I was lucky enough to be a part of a historic art show involving over 100 hand painted wooden crosses. The art show included some of my dearest friends and some of my favorite artist. I want to thank my friend Franco of Vatican Studios for including me in such a special event. Here’s my piece.
