Tattoo Stuff

Some current projects from Mortalitus Art



Staying Creative

Most of my creative work lately has lived in this song, having influenced my thought process for so long now. The tone of my writing and tattooing follows the meaning in the melody, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Tool is such an amazing motivator, demanding creative expression whenever and however possible. My art has kept me crazy busy but it looks like next weekend will be a great mini vacation with good friends. 35 pages left to rewrite and Chaos Mortalitus: Revelations, Book 2, will be ready for editing and then an Amazon Kindle and softcover release. It will be published by Mortalitus Art and will be available for download as an E-book for $2.99 with Chaos Mortalitus, Book 1, currently available for download for $1.99. Book 2 should available Sept/Oct 2011 and I will begin the conclusion, Chaos Mortalitus: Tribulations End, Book 3 in December 2011. Another smaller writing project is an untitled Novella about a shark attack. Later.

Happy 4th of July!

Super pumped about lighting off fireworks and hanging with friends and family. Work has been so crazy lately, a few days off are definitely in order. I took my daughter to Disneyland the other day for the first time and she loved the firework show, so I imagine she'll like our fireworks a lot more this year. Work on Chaos Mortalitus: Revelations, book 2 is continuing and hopefully everything will arrive on schedule, but that all depends on my tattooing schedule. Anyway, enjoy independence everyone!

Still haven't smoked an actual cigarette!

I quit smoking!

Sorta, the month is coming to an end and I haven't had an actual cigarette in 12 days. I now smoke E-cigarettes, (electronic cigarette, The SafeCig) and so far so good. I have no desire to go back to tradional smoking at this point, I think I prefer the SafeCig over traditional cigarettes. If you want to quit smoking, I strongly suggest switching to the E-cig, I started with 14mg nicotine cartridges am will be taking a step down to 11mg very soon. My goal is to get to 0mg in the next 6 months and become completely free of nicotine. I love this product, I'll update periodically.

Chaos Mortalitus is available on Kindle, download it now for $1.99

Chaos Mortalitus, Book 1 of 3 has finally been released as an E-book download in the Amazon Kindle Store and is currently available for $1.99 to download to your Kindle, Ipad, Iphone, Android or other mobile reading device. This has been a great accomplishment in my life and one more step to share my Science Fiction trilogy with the world. Downloads have been relatively decent so I can't complain, and finally getting some feedback from others has been great.

I'm still hard at work on Chaos Mortalitus: Revelations, Book 2 which has been a work in progress for almost 18 months and I'm very happy with my results thus far. Now entering the final stages of the editing process, Book 2 should be ready for a September/October 2011 release if all goes well. So much of this next chapter in the Chaos Mortalitus saga has been kept under wraps at this point leaving me to wonder how this second installment will be received by my readers.

As far as my tattooing and artwork, well it's been crazy hectic but I'm really looking forward to the future as I've just recently passed my 9 year anniversary in this trade. My clients and projects have been great lately and I can't wait to see what's next. I will be posting some updated projects soon, take care everyone and download Chaos Mortalitus to begin a journey across time and space with Ashton Mortal.
