Well, it’s been a busy spring. I’ve been on a lot of trips lately tattooing at Seventh Son Tattoo in San Francisco, Optic Nerve Arts in Portland, and Shogun Tattoo in Milwaukee. It was a good run. I got to hang out with some good friends and clients, and of course, do some fun tattoos.
I’m back in Chicago for the moment and am trying to buckle down on a number of art projects including finishing a series of paintings for an as of yet undated showing, and working on a mural in Oak Park along the Metra track. So all that has been keeping me pretty busy. Of course I’ve been keeping busy with tattooing as well, and am really stoked on the projects I’m getting a chance to wrap up this year. I’ll post a few in the gallery as well as on the blog here, but as anyone who knows me or follows my site knows, updates are few and far in between. So if you want to be more clued in as to what’s going on with my travel schedule, or just see more of the work I’m posting, then try checking out my instagram account under username Futureteller, or my facebook account www.facebook.com/gifford.kasen
Enough about what I’ve been doing, here’s some pictures of new tattoos and artwork
Here’s a few in progress pieces I’ve been working on. These were all tattooed around the Chicago/Milwaukee area and have mostly been done over late 2012-early 2013.
This piece is two sessions in so far, being worked on in Portland, and is on my good buddy Jeffrey. The skull on the upper arm was done while I was living there in 2009, so sortof a big change in styles from then. I’ll probably go back into the skull and rework a bit of it to pull the whole piece together.
Here’s a couple more from Chicago. The skull was a walk in that I got to have some fun with. The owl is on a longer term client. We will be adding background to it after he gets the spider web and some other stuff lasered.
Lastly, every month this year I’ve been doing a skull drawing and releasing a limited edition of five prints. This was the original for April. The prints themselves each have an original sketch done over them in red ink. If you’re interested in grabbing one, or setting up a tattoo appointment, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s only five each month, so they go fast.
As always, thanks for looking, and creep hard.
