You recently released a cool merch with a reference to Bolt Thrower. Your drawings look cool not only on the skin! Do you have any thoughts on doing cover art, painting or anything else? Would you like to try some new medium besides the tattoo machine?
Haha thanks! I got so many emails and DM's telling me Bolt Thrower was going to sue me, but I think I'm protected under the laws of parody.
I actually used to do a ton of cover art and commission work for punk/metal bands. It looks nothing like the work I do with tattooing. It was all black pen and ink illustration. I still do it from time to time, and mostly just for my own bands, but I don't really have an interest in doing commission work anymore. It was exhausting. I also took all that work off of my page because people kept asking me to tattoo like that and it was just stuff that would not work well as tattoos.
Other than that, I'd really love to get into acrylic or oil painting. Making traditional fantasy art like Whelan, Frazetta, Beasley, and Elmore is really the dream. To just be a charged old crust wizard toiling over canvas is where I hope to be when I'm old.
Writing too. Writing is a passion of mine that I don't feel like I've ever fully devoted enough time and energy into. A life goal is to write a novel. Maybe once im not doing 3 bands, and tattooing/painting full time, I'll figure it out.
