I dunno if rendering internal anatomy is considered body art, but don't see why not. I have some (a lot) of resource material on the subject, and I find it fascinating how intricate the body is, inside and out. So many processes are so over my head, I liked it better when I thought the body was filled with round, oblong, balloons and if you got injured one of them would pop and you would go to heaven. Life is Not like that, unfortunately. People get injured, they suffer, and then the rest is whatever. oh well, more to come.

Here are a few versions of some recent inkwork. Washes take a lot of patience and skill which I don't have yet. The first time I drew tje image i got carried away and tried to do a wash too soon. I started over and focused on the details rather than trying to render it fully on paper. I am lacking in many aspects of pen and ink, and probably won't be good for a while, but i gotta start somewhere.

My latest bike concept is complete. I wanted a bike with a classic, natural, understated look. Not too flashy but eye-catching none the less, this bike is really coming together nicely. here is a rundown of the specs: limited khaki-green Soma Rush (with no braze-ons or bottle-cage holes!!), hand-built wheels by my co-worker/friend Bill and I at Capital Hill Bikes. velocity fusion rims, , DT Swiss spokes, Suzue Promax hubs, Velo-flex tires, Sugino 75 crankset, fyxomatosis chainring (48tooth) Dura-Ace cog (15 T), Thompson seat-post, Selle Royale SLR saddle, Campognolo Chorus Front brake, Campy record headset, Velo-Orange Stem and toeclips and MKS GR-9 platform pedals. I need to to more upgrading to dial the colo-way in just right but the concept is getting closer to completion every week.

Here is the original image to the Previous post. I found it in the books which inspired my tattoos. There were a few more clippings that i scanned but the layout of this particular advertisement jumped out at me. I would have left the color as is if it wasn't so distracting, so for the sake of the project I photoshopped a more autumnal color scheme.
This is my first complete composition of the season. I have been craving a calendar to keep up with my schedule. After scouring Staples for an appropriate calendar, I was left unsatisfied. Refusing to look any further, I decided to construct my own. This imagery has almost no concept except for the color scheme which I spent most of the night manipulating. If anyone is looking for a large format of this calendar lemme know. I would be happy to do so in most any format. Look forward to november.
