For a relaxing time, make it a suntory time

Here I am. Blogging from my iPhone. I'm am sitting in the sun with my morning coffee. No, I'm not on some tropical island but in Bisserup at our summer house. The Danish summer has decided to show up and giving us a taste of good times ahead. Anyway. I know I promised pictures of te fruit of my vacation. Well... Turns out that I kinda needed just that... Vacation. I havn't been able to produce anything really in all this time. Nothing finished anyway. So you will have to wait a bit longer. I am working a bit next week so hopefully there will be proof of creativity in a near future.
So what have I been doing all this time, you might ask (or maybe you don't give a shit but I will tell you anyway). I went on a day trip to Hamburg to hang with friends and see my friends in The Kandidate play with Haust, Gaza, Trap Them and Rotten Sound. Great night and show and it was good to hang with my German friends. I brought my camera to take a few shots at the show. The lighting was terrible so I only managed to get a few shots of Trap Them which I will post on my photoblog when I am back home on my own computer and be able to edit them.
The day after coming back from Hamburg I went to see my friends in Cancer Bats and Stanley who is their tour manager. They were playing in Odense so I took the train to get there and drove with them back to Copenhagen where they stayed with us for the time they were here. I also brought my camera for that show so there will be some shots of that later as well. Brunch were had. Coffee and ice-cream was enjoyed and the weather was nice. Eckel came back from his trip to thailand and joined the fun. Good times all around. I got to tattoo Stanley before the bats had to play their Copenhagen show. We had to ship them off to Belgium the next day which was really hard since everyone just enjoyed hanging out in the nice weather. After shipping them off we went to the park to hang with Eckel in the sun. See all this is stuff I never have the time to do normally so that is one of many reasons why I enjoy my vacation time as just that... Vacation.
We went to the country side after hanging at the park. The weather seams even better with nature and open sky around you. Tonight we will go back to Copenhagen to meet cancer bats on their way to Stockholm. They will have a pit stop at our place before moving on tomorrow... After brunch, coffee and ice-cream.
Now I will try to pretend to get something creative done. Maybe.

I would like to remind you that this is posted from my iPhone so I'm sorry if there is spelling mistakes and other errors.

See you all soon.

Wolfie from hell!

Many things have been going on since the last time I posted but all in a nice pace.
Since we decided not to book anything, all though we weren't going to Japan after all, we have had time to enjoy things going on. We went to the Copenhagen Convention Friday to say hi to all or friends that we usually never get to see. It was nice to be at a convention without having to work. That doesn't happen too often.
Saturday we had some Family thing to go to and sunday we met With Seth Ciferri and his girlfriend Emi for brunch. Super nice people. I have only emailed with Seth and seen him a few times shortly on a convention so it was really cool to find out that he was a great guy in real life too. We had a really great time with those guys!
We went to the shop Monday to hang out and I started a really cool piece on Emi. Our friend Jime Litwalk came by with Joe Capobianco and Andy Schmidt to see the new shop. Jesper who is a great pinstriper and a customer of mine came as well since he knew them too. Our friend David also dropped by so it was a nice day of visits at the shop. We like visits. So I tattooed Emi and Seth tattooed Laurits and that was a full day. Phew. 
The next day we started with some brunch with Seth, Emi and John Montgomery who kindly gave us some new inks to try out. Later Amalie and me both got tattooed by Seth and he was also kind enough to retune a machine that I bought from him a while ago. Seth has been a huuuuge inspiration to me and has been a main giant influence when it came to find a way to make roses and stuff...ok ok I stole it all... This is one of the reasons why I have wanted him to do a rose on my hand for a gizzilion years. I was so sad when he kinda stopped tattooing but stoked when I heard that he was getting back into it again. 
We went out to our favorite sushi place for dinner and ended back at the shop for some final machine tuning before they had to leave. We hope to have you guys back again really soon.
So now our vacation starts. Not that many plans other than painting and a few shows here and there. I am stoked about all the time I will have for painting but I do miss taking pictures. One of the things I love about going to Japan is that I wanna photograph everything and everybody. Not so much here. I know that Copenhagen is a pretty city but it just doesn't please my viewfinding eye the same way as Japan does. Same goes for the people I see on the streets. I just don't feel the same urge to snap pictures of danish people. I might have to go out and try though, just to get my fix. I can't really think of any projects that I could do here in Denmark at the moment. Any ideas?

The print we did to help Japan is selling like crazy! We have already sold half of them in like a week. First shipment will go out today. So scroll down to the previous post and get the info on how to get a print and help Japan while we still have some prints left. They are also for sale at the shop but we don't have exact days that we will be there. If you wanna pick it up at the shop anyway you can write us about prepaying it through paypal and we will put it aside for you to pick up later. 50 left guys!
If anyone would be interested in buying the original then let me know and I will think of a way to do like an auction thing or something. Depends on the interest.

Even though I havn't worked in a while I still have an unposted picture for you guys. Can't leave you hanging without anything to look at, can I?
So here is the a Satanic wolf from hell! YEAH!!!

I promise to post some stuff even though I'm not gonna tattoo so much in the next couple of weeks. Other projects might pop up anyway so please stay tuned.
