Jam packed Weekend

 This weekend was a memorable one. Sunny days in the bay , and alot of runnin' around.
One of the first things I had to get done was for an art show at Sake Koji Lounge in downtown SJ. Started off painting the background with calligraphy letters, then Chris and I through on the tribal top layer. I figured the painting was big enough for the wall and it turned out a bit smaller than I hoped for. But it ended up working out. Got the piece in there for first fridays art walk.    

Then off to Santa Cruz. I had to go fishing. Jae, my pops, and I havent gone in a while. We casted off the piers near the boardwalk. It was a real chill day, hooking the anchovies, and eventually catching nothing! lol, oh well, on to the next...Grabbed some lunch took a nap and headed back.

Didn't see the sign...

Weekend Shots

When you think about Tahoe in the winter, snowboarding and skiing, and just plain snow, come to mind. Well I dont really do either, anything attached to my feet, except shoes. So instead I did a guest spot at my friends tattoo shop, Lake Monster. Owner Reed and Narissa. Let me tell you about tattoo shops, usually lightweight dirty. This space was one of the cleanest spots I've ever been in, OCD at its finest. They never told me how busy it gets, on a saturday, so I found out. I tattooed all walk ins, Waikiki steeze... a micro butterfly, a horse with tribal? Praying hands with a cross behind it , and a Cherry Creek dragon. I haven't done a marathon like that in a while. Good Fun and a place I can definitly tattoo at again.
