We've been staying up late nights every other Sunday to webcast Off the Map Live and Guy Aitchison and Michele Wortman's Hypercast. Check out this great blog about the last Hypercast!
From the Ink & Dagger blog:
Ink&Dagger‘s Russ Abbott was thrilled to be a guest on Michele Wortman and Guy Aitchison’s Hypercast hosted on TattoonowTV.com. In an exclusive, double length interview (two hours!) the team covered a broad range of topics from illustrative techniques, contrast and color use, to connections with clients and how to be authentic within your art.
“When I started my apprenticeship in the late 90′s, Guy Aitchison’s work was some of the first to capture my imagination. He was and continues to be a huge inspiration to myself and countless other tattooers.” Abbott said about the opportunity.
The mutual respect and real talk made the Hypercast a pretty cool moment in time. The tone of the interview was intimate and reverential, the conversation between the seasoned and passionate tattoo artists with different artistic objectives covered a broad range of subjects in a detailed manner. Ink&Dagger tattooer Kelly Doty and Best Ink champion Teresa Sharpe sat in on the last half of the interview and the group critiqued audience submitted tattoos as well as each other’s work.
“All in all,” said Abbott. “It was a great experience, and I’m really excited about the discussion and the ideas that we got to share!”
Hypercast streams live every other Sunday at 11pm at TattooNowTv and invites some of the brightest minds and hands in tattooing to discuss and share in an extraordinary air of open conversation. It is preceded by TattooNow interviews, and is followed with TattooNow‘s “Tattoo of the Day” and news. If you missed the live Hypercast streaming, no worries, here it is on Guy & Michele’s YouTube channel TattooTelevision.

Michele and I are excited about the results of our first Hypercast that we hosted two weeks ago, with guests Durb Morrison and Mike Cole. We interviewed them and discussed the crossover of fine art and tattooing, and how second mediums can enhance a tattooist's career. We then wrapped things up with a few audience questions and tattoo critiques. It's on archive permanently now for you to check out any time you want.
The second episode broadcasts tonight, Wednesday October 16. This week we are interviewing Nikko Hurtado, whose reputation has exploded lately as the public has discovered his almost unbelievable realism skills in both tattoo and oil paint. His Tattooing De Los Muertos DVD has been a bestseller at our store since its release. We've known Nikko since his very first paintings and have stood back in awe as he has embraced this classic medium and mastered it in just a few short years. He currently has a solo exhibition of new work showing at the Copro Nason gallery in Los Angeles. We'll be talking with him about galleries, painting, tattooing, the industry, and where realism is going next. You can tune in at TattooNOWtv tonight at 11:00pm Central time, or you can watch an archived cut of the show starting this Friday at our YouTube channel, Tattoo Television.

The full Guy Aitchison Interview with Alex Grey about the ENTHEON and its kickstarter program.
For over 30 years, the art of Alex Grey has reached the hearts and minds of people all around the globe with its portrayals of the physical and subtle anatomy of individuals in the context of cosmic, biological and spiritual evolution.
From 2004 to 2010 the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors installation was on view in the heart of New York City and saw tens of thousands come from all walks of life to experience the transformational power of art. Since closing its doors, the paintings have been in storage and unavailable to the public. It's time to bring the paintings back!
Our plan is to build a permanent exhibition space for these iconic works of art, along with works from other visionary artists. It will be a destination you can visit anytime of year to commune and contemplate with the art, now and for generations to come.
That place is ENTHEON.
The Kickstarter did get funded, congrats Alex and Allyson!
