I’m Getting Worse At This

16 Jan

I just checked, and my last blog post was right before the Virginia Beach Tattoo Festival in August, so we need a quick catch up,

so starting where we left off, the VB Tattoo Festival was a Blast

My booth

I met the Enigma

I got to judge the little kids’ temporary tattoo contest

Then, over the summer, mom and I took a little road trip tour all over VA – One stop at James River Brewing Co where I’ve been hired as the artist / graphic designer of their beer labels

And another stop at Made; By the People, For the People in Staunton – a little shop that bought a wholesale lot of my artwork

Then, in September, I tagged along on one of my husband’s work trips to Glacier National Park in Montana 1236055_10100661847549337_2776339_n 1184785_10100656985163597_1124719441_n 1236339_10100661835887707_1812512595_n 1235350_10100661885298687_1034785900_n 1239433_10100662220352237_1965105384_n

I got my birthday present from my husband which was the most kickass present EVER – I got my Jeep all striped up and lettered up by Igor’s Custom. There is now NO mistaking the Hot Mess Express!

The end of summer / early fall, I kinda started a photography business Mallory Hot Mess Photography

And I invented these genius little quick shoots called “Drive-By Shootings” that have really taken off

I’ve gotten to take some really sweet pics so far from weddings to newborns to awkward Christmas photos, and picked up some pretty nifty clients so far – including Harley-Davidson Bayside and I have an agreement to start shooting here soon for FM99

Then was the holidays sprinkled with a ton of photoshoots and the 96X Winter Meltdown where I got to see The Last Bison, Capital Cities, MS MR, and Fall Out Boy while selling my art – one of the funnest shows I got to participate in yet

Now it’s the new year, and I’m gonna try to be better at posting stuff as it’s relevent rather than all this recap business.

NEWNESS: I’m already eat-sleep-breathing Tattoo Festival since the 4th Annual Hampton Show is less than 7 weeks away!!
