Hello there! This was maybe my 5th time setting up a “Pau Pop Up” … I never know what’s gonna happen or who I’m going to meet. There are days when nobody will say anything to me, and there are days I’ll sell a few things and get motivational comments. But it’s cool that way. On Saturday I got a late start.. I only stayed a couple hours and didn’t get anyone to talk to me until after I closed up shop, of course. It was kind of a last minute thing, and wasn’t as prepared as I thought I’d be! I know now that next week I’ll set up super early, bring actual paintings, and get a good spot right off a corner. That way I’m not directly in traffic and I can set up bigger pieces with plenty of space 🙂
Thanks to my friends Shami and Taryn for helping me out to get this done!
I’m happy Dima is happy about his new logo I painted in the lobby of LAVC.
I started off wondering how would be the best way of doing this… There were more sharp edges so I thought the best way for me could have definitely been to use a projector, but I didn’t have that. So freehand it was.. It turned out great!
Get your meds from these guys!! They really are the best! Good vibes only.
I wanted to share some tattoo designs I’ve done over the years! Friends always ask me to help them create custom art or fix tattoos.
This one was for a girlfriend who got a bad artist and had little to no detail.. she wasn’t happy with it so I added the face, headdress, the 6 arms, crossed legs, and magic carpet. (I wish I had the before picture!)
This pair of tattoos was created for my friend Skip who asked me to draw him his favorite food: Bread and Cheese.
This phoenix was for my old boss Joe. He wanted a custom design for his forearm so I created this!
My friend Lorenzo is an actor and movie junkie, so he told me he wanted a film reel….
I’m working on another tattoo this week for a guy from Pittsburgh. He had a pretty detailed idea of this design. He wanted a Steel Beam to represent his hometown, and a California bear drawn walking on top of it. I still have to do the Bear but I got the steel beam down so far…..
The same client wanted a more personal design for another tattoo. The word ‘Life’ in his mother’s handwriting represents loving life… and a tombstone engraved with an infinity sign, reminding him how short life really is.
I enjoy creating people’s ideas and make them happy by bringing it to life! 🙂
