Greetings from Hyperspace Studios! Spring is just around the corner and we have some events and other exciting things happening we'd like to let you know about.
In the third week of March we'll be visiting Good Time Charlie's Tattooland in Anaheim California, home of the world-renowned fineline pioneer Jack Rudy. Jack and Guy will be collaborating on a major black and grey piece that week; this piece will be among the work that will be featured in an upcoming book on collaborative tattoo art that will be released by Proton Press sometime in 2008.
Meanwhile, Michele Wortman is taking appointments at Tattooland that week from March 19-24. She is booking up fast but still has some openings available; if you are a fan of her unique feminine style and live in California, don't miss this opportunity to collect some of her work without the need to fly all the way to the Midwest. Click here if you want to inquire about an appointment.
Then, on the evening of March 23rd, Guy and Michele will be presenting a recent body of artwork in Electric Eye, the second exhibition at Tattooland's new gallery, Koolsville Gallery & Studio. Come join us along with a crowd including many of Southern California's most notable tattoo professionals for this exciting evening. Michele and Guy will also be signing copies of their art books Organica and Moments Of Epiphany at this event. Click here for more information.
Also, come check out our new homepage, which until now has had the same look for almost 9 years. This signals the beginning of a process that will continue through the spring as we do major renovations to our Galleries, Store and to the Books & Forums pages. One major new feature at the homepage is our eBay store, where we always have at least a few items on sale including art prints, slightly irregular books (perfect for your waiting room!) and original pieces of art.
If you are a tattoo artist and own a copy of Guy's book Reinventing The Tattoo, we have a new set of exercises posted at the Projects&Challenges forum. This one concerns how to lay out scales properly, along with an additional challenge. It's never too late to participate in the past exercises as well. If you don't own a copy of the book and are interested in being able to participate in these kinds of activities, click here for more information.
Anyway, enjoy your month of March, and we hope to see you all at the show in Anaheim on the 23rd.
Guy & Michele
