the band that ended too soon...

if you are a regular reader of the blog you might remember me shamelessly plugging my friends band "The Merriweather Deer". well the bad news is that they are no more....thats right the lead singer Eph and his wife are leaving our sunny shores for Portland today, and they have decided not to continue on without him. its a huge shame as this band accomplished more in their short 8 months together than some bands do in a lifetime, all coming to a perfect climax when they opened for the Flaming Lips and the Raveonettes last night.
the good news is that knowing that they weren't going to be playing any more shows they decided to produce a CD. its all done by the band for the fans. Recorded in different locations around HK, and amazingly mixed by Scott Evans. Also i had the honor of being able to put together the artwork for the sleeves.
I have a real limited supply of the CDs in the studio. You can pick 1 (or more) up for the exceptional price of HK$70. all the proceeds are going go to the band, and hopefully used to entice Ephraim back to HK for a reunion gig. Also if you are from overseas then i will be more than happy to post them to you
Dont be a sucker, pick one of these up before they are all gone!!!!


the elbubble/the impossible photo

i got to make a new compass rose tattoo on mr jacky's elbow bones yesterday, it came out great, but damned impossible to take a good photo of. so what you get is a photo of the enormous distended bubbalicious swelling instead. seriously, check it out!!
dont fret though, he's gonna be back for some sweet eagle tattoo action in a few weeks, so im going to get much better pics of it then.

also in the straight line and circle category, i got to do this nice little cross for rose last week. despite having to stop every 5 minutes, we managed to get it done in the end. i have seen this since and the greys healed up real nice and soft.
lastly if you are thinking about coming by on saturday night... you'd be better off doing it on sunday instead cos i'll be at the flaming lips gig (in fact you should probably be there too!)


this ones for me

i have been pretty busy doing the tattoo stuff recently, drawing tattoos, and then tattooing tattoos...and everyone knows tattoo stuff is great, but sometimes you got to have a break right? right? well i have had a break the last couple of days, and spent them trying to get better at painting and this was the product:its A4 on nice water colour paper, and its done with... thats right water colours. any feedback is always welcome. catch you soon buddies of the electric web
