Hell City 2018 – Wet Paint Project – Columbus Ohio

Wet Paint Project is one of my favorite things. Chris Dingwell organizes a bunch of artists to hang out for the weekend and create art “live” and “on stage”. For the attendees of Hell City it is an opportunity to see what goes into creating our artwork (outside of tattooing) that they may not be able to see happening normally (or ever). For the attending artists it is a huge block of time to sit and create without having to worry about the phone ringing, the laundry needing done or rather that noise is that cat puking on something. We also get to hang out with friends that we don’t always get to see… and we get to be creative in a group setting (which also rarely happens).
I am honored that Chris allows me to continue to participate in this event and that I get to be among the amazing artists who are present.

There is lots of coverage out there of the rest of the convention so I will leave that to the more sociable and well known humans to cover.

Here is what I worked on over the weekend.

Started out working on the piece from last weekend’s opening.Qdt+XHZtQiaCqRcDqq5Hmw

Then started a new one.






None of these are finished – but I got good solid progress on all of them and am looking forward to finishing them up and starting on some of the new pieces that were inspired bu this weekend.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and said hi and those people who picked up drawings and postcards to add to their collections. I couldn’t do what I do without all of you and I am both humbled and grateful for the people who collect me work.

See you next year!
