Raw, brutal, fingernails against a chalk board, or positively tough, innovative, resourceful. What do these make shift tattoo guns speak to you? Something out of a horror film, maybe seems a bit unsanitary, mostly risky, pretty sure mom would disapprove. The other side argues they are freaking awesome, genius creations, make you feel fearless and macho…until the needle hits your underarm and yeeowza! Yeah, that right there burns a bit.
Tattoo culture at a maximum security prison in Mexico City influenced this collection Things Get Better, believe it or not they are water colors! Scott Campbell is the next best thing to step out of Brooklyn’s art scene with a star studded tattoo clientele and manipulating water colors for piercing prints like these. He captures every shiny metal, misses no details. It seems just unbelievable that they are stuck in a frame, all we can say is “wow.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
