… this is happening—right now.
Every student of the arts needs a place to create, paint, draw, learn and calm the mind.
It doesn’t need to be a large space.
I try to live like a Buddhist monk as much as possible.
Over the years I have now gotten rid of 85% to 90% of my belongings.
With a recent final purge, I almost have next to nothing.
I only try to have what is needed. I don’t collect things. I keep it as minimal as possible.
Through a lot of practice… I’ve learned what the phrase ‘Less Is More’ really means.
Living tiny… for me, is the way, there’s no other way to live.
Peace + Love.

Here’s a snapshot (Galaxy Note 3) of my tattoo ink cabinet…
I recently switched to Waverly Hand-Mixed Tattoo Ink (pigments).
I’ve had my eye on them for a few years, and decided to select 25 colors to try.
I like minimalism in life, but especially in art, so I will eventually reduce this ink color palette down to around 16 colors, predominantly used for traditional japanese tattooing. Waverly Inks are hand-mixed and have a really nice and creamy consistency. Ultimately I was won over by the hues and tones of the entire Waverly Ink color line. Also Bill (the owner /creator) has also created a line of acrylic / watercolor paints with the same color palette as the tattoo pigments, and as someone who paints a lot in watercolor, this is exciting. So far I like them. I’ll note my opinions later when I post finished work using Waverly Ink.
Peace ♥ Love.
