Hey cozy cats!
I hope that wherever you may be the weather is treating you well, more or less… I know that things are all over the place weather-wise and that there are some extremely cold spells in places that aren’t used to it–So I hope you all are keeping safe and warm! I have an exciting announcement for folks on the mainland…
It’s been SO long since I’ve made a website post! So much is changed and changing!
Website Updates + Art Title Updates
I truly appreciate your patience as I make numerous changes to my title and website! I have a new Studio on Pender Island, called Drawing Wolf Studio. I will be altering my site a bit, to make it more concise, encompassing of my studio (tattoo) work and my other practices! Name changes, and changes in general, take time to execute and catch on, so thank you! My emails, and URL titles all are changing slowly from “Drawin Wolf” to “Drawing Wolf (studio)”
I now have a MAILING LIST! Send an email to DRAWINGWOLFTATTOO@GMAIL.COM with the subject as “mailing list” and I’ll add you to the list. The mailing list will receive updates on my tattoo bookings, and other announcement related to my practice.
I am currently not going over tattoo proposals. I am developing a new proposal form for tentative clients. I am trying to make my booking process more streamline, so I can spend less time on emails, and more time on tattoo sketches, ad tattooing!
Thanks so much!
Today I released my latest Drawin Wolf album, I Hear Footsteps!
In the houses you grew up in, hums the echo of footsteps you once knew quite well.
I Hear Footsteps is an audible book of words: a mindmap thats ties my thoughts of these past few months together. Thoughts of the growth and loss of friendships, relationships, the roots that remain; thoughts of dysphoria, transformed spaces from my childhood: the valleys, the campgrounds, the bedrooms; Bridges, maps, tools for safe passage through this lifetime this lifetime. This album is me reaching for a sense of immersion I believe existed in me when I was younger, and that I must now actively seek out.
These songs have all been written by me within the past few months. I began recording in Devon’s trailer (thanks devon!) at Ally’s cabin (thanks ally!) 2 weeks after my arrival in Dawson City, YT. The rest, I recorded in my room once we found a home for the winter.
I send my love and well-wishing to those who encouraged have been encouraging me to write my writing as a child, thank you for telling me my stories were worth anything.
After a couple months of touring with friends, I have managed to settle down for the season in the lovely Dawson City! After a long, adventurous summer, I await the grip of winter, ready to learn at SOVA, and ready to hunker down and focus on creating and becoming a part of the Dawson community.
My, oh my, how the months fly by! They only are going to get more exciting from here onwards. Summer adventures await, but first, here are some lovely spring time events to watch out for…

Dreary Weather is a Thematic (and somewhat experimental) Creation that uses various symbols to convey and discuss impacts of weather on our minds as humans of the earth. Moths, children of the night, are drawn to and guided by the moon’s light, the mother of cycles. The cyclical nature of seasons affects our emotions and mindsets as it does the air we breathe, the ground we walk on, the trees we lie under. As fall quickly nears its end, I witness my friend’s falling under the gloomy spell of winter, as a moth falls under the deathly spell of the light it so desires.
