Did some cool matching tattoos the other day on a couple. King chess piece and queen chess piece with some pieces in the background representing their kids. Custom designed and tattooed by me. #studio21tattoo #tattoo #chess #blackandgreytattoo

Better video and now it’s dry greenware. Can’t wait to do some glaze tests! #nosferatu #tiki #tikimug #tikitiki #tikilove #tikilife
First cast of my nosferatu mug was a success! So happy this mold came out good. I will have a few of these available feb. 9th at the Dark Arts Market! #tiki #tikimug #tikitiki #tikilife
Almost done with this beast. Just need to detail the legs and claws. I think this will be a resin sculpture I will do limited editions of. The head will be too difficult to do a plaster mold and slip cast. Might look better as resin anyway and I can airbrush it. What do you guys think? #zbrush #zbrush2018
My favorite illustration of a burned hand on a kiln safety poster I got with the kiln. It’s hard to be patient while the kiln cools down after a firing of new stuff!
Back to work! Kids are back to school and it’s time to get shit done!!! Preparing as much as I can for dark arts market on February 9th! Should have some mummy mugs, devil babies, shroom head pots and even a couple nosferatu mugs if the mold came out good.
Got my new nosferatu mug mold done! Took a week! Now time to dry it out so I can use it. There were a few areas that cracks off a little when I was demolding but so far it looks good. I won’t know for sure until I do the first cast next week! I can’t wait!!!!!
Did a fun Kintaro golden boy doing an RKO wresting move on this poor koi fish. #studio21tattoo #tattoo #tattoos #japanesetattoo
WIP Calvin and Hobbes sleeve I’m working on. It’s a fun project! I love going through the books and reading all the old comics I used to read a while back. Love it! #studio21tattoo #tattoo #tattoos #calvinandhobbes
Sculpting some creepy legs for my next idea.
Here’s a test print of a blank baby head im working on. Once I’m happy with the blank I will then start adding creepy shit to it!!! My favorite part. First up will probably be a creepy spider legged baby head! 🕷 #3dprinting #form2 #3dprint #3dprinted #maker
Happy new year! First 3D print of the year was a success! This new printer is amazing! I can’t wait to make all my weird ideas a reality. #3dprinting #3dprint #form2 #formlabs
Here’s my top nine of 2018. A good mix of tattoos and sculpture. I had a shift in my side art career when I decided to learn ceramics. I fell in love and was happy to have made the move to invest money and time into the medium. Looking forward to a great 2019 with a step up on my 3D sculpting game! Can’t wait! Thanks everyone and have a safe and fun New Years! #newyearseve #topnine #2018
Part 2 of the mold was a success. Now on to the next part. It’s gonna be a few days of really boring posts. But when this is done it’s gonna be glorious!
This took me about 2 hours to do. I need to get faster, this shit is ridiculous. But it should come out nice if I just take my time ( I keep telling myself that). I’ll probably pour the plaster tomorrow so now this is getting bagged and put somewhere the kids won’t touch it! Wish I had the balls to silicone master mold this thing.
Part 2 about to begin. Got the bottom piece done. I love rick and morty btw. And yes my tree is still up.
Learning molding as an artist has become a great tool in my experience as a noob ceramic artist. Kind of sucks but I’ve learned to just take my time and do one piece of the mold per day... so this mold will take about 6 days to make, then a week to dry before I can even use it. Just part of the long process it takes and I want to show people how much work goes behind making a mug or sculpture. #plastermold #moldmaking #moldmakingsucks
Part one of six of molding my nosferatu mug! Wish me luck! I really need to come up with a better logo for the bottom of my mugs! #tiki #tikimug #tikitiki #mold #plastermold
Did a fun little walk-in today! I wish these came in all the time! I love doing the Japanese demon masks. And it was his first tattoo. #oni #japanesedemon #onimask #tattoo #tattoos #studio21tattoo
