The angry cry of the angry pie

I aint got anything to post today. Yesterday my back went again, and i managed to do all the pieces i had booked in but had to reschedule todays appointments. Taking it easy today and got an appointment with a chiropractor tomorrow before work. This is getting to be way too regular an occurrence...
Wish me luck!

Why am i so thirsty when i drank so much last night?

So we had a chinese new year BBQ round at my gaff last night. Good times. Its was Pick's last night here in HK before he shoots off to the land down under (Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And he said,

"I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Lying in a den in Bombay
With a slack jaw, and not much to say
I said to the man, "Are you trying to tempt me
Because I come from the land of plenty?"
And he said,

"Oh! Do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.)

. Anyways, here's a snap of the harbor for everyone else who wan't up for braving the crowds and the cold!

I'm watching you...

So I always hate tattooing other people in the industry, with their beady eyes n stuff. ! But the last 2 artists i worked on were super sweet and got stuff that i enjoyed tattooing so much that i totally forgot they weren't just an appendage......sounds weird but i promise it's a good thing!
So here's a piece i got to do on Brandi, a tattooist from Canada i met in Singapore at the convention. Was a sweet piece to do (once i finally got the bloody stencil on perfect )I get a bit obsessive about spacing when i'm fitting stuff between other stuff!

So i finally got it all pasted together on photoshop so u can see it in it's full glory. Taking a few days off over Chinese New Year which will be a nice break from the shop. Although i gotta draw all the tattoos for the end of the week still so we'll see if i'm not in the shop half the time!

 I need to get a proper desk at home coz it's starting to bug me like no tomorrow. All's i got is a teeny tiny computer desk or the dining room table which is carved wood so it ain't flat. not even close. well, not flat enough to draw on coz i gotta have like 5 meters squared for all my stuff to be strewn out and before u know it u'll be half way through a nice clean line, ur paper will shift and BAM! you put your pen through the paper coz of the fancy shmancy carving. 

Got 2 paintings finished yesterday coz i ended up being at work 15 hours straight! so while ross got tattooed i had some time to kill. I'm all the better for it! i'll post the paintings either later tonight or when i'm back at work on thursday.

dog on my back

so i gots me a chihuahua on me back and i'm about to go home, and suddenly the skies opened and no other than......rain came out. (i have to admit, i was a little disappointed after all this talk of these guys coming soon)
anyways, rain..... i dont tend to mind it, but right now i seem to b wearing the most absorbent outfit ever known to man.... so i figured i'd waste a little time. YOUR TIME! sorry! i cant stop apologising for these lame ass recent blogs.
anyways, i did a weird version of che today, and other stuff nnnnn now i'm just wasting time., 
by the way did u know all my favorite singers stole all my favorite lines?! I KNOW! WRONG!!!
so hopefully i'll post something half decent soon!
til next time.

scripta doodle doo

so here's some recent script i did....

 fancied posting a blog and the only other things i had to post were from singapore, or need to be photoshopped together coz u cant see the whole tattoo in one pic. this will make sense when i post the butterfly~ ! anyways, quick post between customers and a quick chance to recap the mountains filled with the fruit of knowledge that have recently been passed down through countless generations of hardened blogger royalty.
the best news of all is that i got some more work done on my thigh piece. i'll post a pic as soon as i get my grubby hands on one for your eternal viewing pleasure. i cant wait til i get that piece finished. its gonna be the sistine chapel of my skin i tell ya! 

aww crap my customer just rocked up so this most is anything but fancy and high tech. please accept my apologies!
til next time!

this is already my second try and i'm getting a little peeved......let me explain. so last night the master of the blog taught me all these new swishy fancy thingamegiggies i can try to do on my blog.....and so far......."try" has been the operative word.

Anyways, here are 2 pieces i did at the Singapore tattoo convention. The 1st pic is on a really sweet tattooer from Korea (shhhhhh! there are no tattooers in Korea.....move along)
The 2nd piece is on Ricky Sta.Ana's wife.
I was stoked to be getting the chance to be doing such awesome fun pieces. I dont think there was one piece i did at the show that i didnt really enjoy. 

anyways, i was getting there but now i gotta go not so fancy now eh? sorry! i'll find more stuff to post later hopefully and then i'll get FANCY

It's all go from here!

So I just flew back to HK late last night after working at the 1st annual Singapore tattoo convention, which went down a treat. I was pretty much fully booked which was great as I only had one person booked in over e mail!
The last day of the convention was my birthday and i managed to get Jo harrison to squeeze me in a sweet ass tattoo before i started work! (thanks!)
anyways, i'll post pics of the work i did and other stuff as soon as i find the cable to connect my camera to the computer! (havent quite unpacked, and i'm pretty sure i'm missing a lot...i think my frontal lobe might have slid under the bed.
Anyways, so went straight back to work to find out the guest artist i was expecting next week is here already coz he had visa trouble in good ol' China.
so it's all go! I havent designed ANY of the tattoos i've got in 2morrow, so its gonna be a long night!
Anyways, thought i'd better post at least a few rambles to show i'm still alive and havent been sucked into the digusting abyss that was under my hotel bed (which we soon discovered was a sex hotel) it was pretty rough. weird noises late at night that were even a consenting female or some sort of most definately un-consenting animal of kinds!
Anyways, i'd better stop procrastinating and get drawing...
