S03 Episode 12: Stripe, Tattoo Artist



Back in the first season of the show, I talked to a young artist named Salma Carreon. During the interview, she told me about how she briefly apprenticed at a tattoo shop. And it occurred to me I didn’t really know much about tattoo artists. How they start out, what it takes to become one, anything really. And since then I thought I should talk to one and find out. And it turns out one found me. He had messaged me on the American Bandito Facebook page. He runs a shop called Ultimate Arts Tattoo out on Commercial Ave. So he invited me over there to sit down and talk with him about what he does.

Missing shirt.

It was super unexpected. She's even bought a new one since then.

How I draw my daily webcomic on my website

I go over the process for how I draw my daily webcomic I post on my website. I've been drawing this comic for about 4 years now . It's a diary comic called "Then This Happened..." I think of something that happens to me each day and I try to express it in four panels. No punchlines, just a slice of life from my day. Related link - Collected books of my webcomic from the past three years are available now on Amazon in eBook and paperback! In the video, I show how I use the program Medibang Paint which has a feature to create the panels automatically. Then I write out the text for each panel and the drawing settings I have been using on my  Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen . The story that I draw about in this video deals with a problem I've been having with an online distributor that has been claiming songs as theirs by my band Lorenzo's Music which I feel like that happens a lot! You can check out the finished comic on the website here ! 

More wasps.

I don't know why they freak me out so much.

Inside.

I still feel weird just going outside for no reason sometimes.
