What would happen if I compressed a quarter into two months instead of three? Or operated on a 1/6th of a year timescale? Just a slight compression of goals that let me accomplish two more big projects per year than your average quarterly goal-setter…

Just as an experiment, I’m going to pretend that a year has 6 quarters next year. Even though the “term” is incorrect. I’ll operate under the assumption that we have Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4, Q5, Q6. The person who can iterate the fastest wins.

Jellies 1

My first session on the Jellies sleeve yesterday. I’m loving the spiral flow of the tattoo.

Stained Glass Jellies

I’ve been having a blast plugging in prompts into Midjourney and getting awesome sketches back that I can study and apply to my own compositions.


Midjourney is a tool that I plan to use for…so many things. It’s awesome to look at the outputs for things that I could use in a TTRPG setting.


Midjourney is terrifying. And exciting. I want to see how much it helps my tattooing workflow. So far…it’s looking promising.

Some Gestures

Feeling Guilty

I’m angry with my kids, and they don’t deserve it. I sacrificed a few months of my career to be a stay-at-home dad most of the time, and I regret that decision sometimes.

I thought I could do it all, but I can’t. I need “me” time. I need time to work toward my goals, and it feels like that has been impossible.





Fallback Gestures

I’m cracking down on my daily habits. I stopped tracking the irrelevant ones and started being more militant about the ones that matter to me. Drawing is one of those.

Unfortunately, I didn’t FEEL like drawing today. But I decided to draw, anyway. Because that’s what you do when you commit to something.
