More tattoo flash from Evolved. Plus, we are excited to announce another cool bit of information. In addition to Evolved’s resident artists, we are super stoked to announce that Luis Villagomez is here for the next two weeks and is confirmed to be tattooing at Awesomefest!
Not only is Luis a great tattoo artist, he is also a vintage Star Wars toys expert.
You can check out some of his collection at the official Star Wars website -
and at Rebel Scum - http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=3376530&page=&view=&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1
Luis has also tattooed many, many Star Wars images and was featured in the book -
The Force in The Flesh.
The first Awesomefest 2011 Star Wars poster is in. Thank you to Christen Nelson for her brilliant work on this. Several prints will be available to purchase at the event.
And just a reminder for those of you considering attending. We are not collecting money from you this year but you still must register. Instead we are charging you to go out and raise your own support for the sake of the orphans in Asia. Also note that shirts are not going to be for sale on the day of the event. You MUST purchase your shirt(s) in advance through the Skreened shop. However we will have a silent auction again this year, complete with items from Seagull Bags as well as leftover Dirty Harry shirts from last year.
The First of the Star Wars Tattoo Flash
These are Katrina’s (from Evolved) designs. More from other artists coming soon. Make sure to register today and start raising support.

Official Awesomefest 2011 Logo
Special thanks to Dylan Menges who came up with this badassssss design. Also, registration is now live. We are doing things a bit different this year so we can raise even more money for the kinds of Asia’s Hope. Awesomefest will not be collecting a dime from you this year. Instead, we are allowing the riders to raise sponsors to support them. Simply have your donors to http://www.asiashope.org/awesomefest and select their level of giving (ranging from $25-$250).
On the day of the event, we will supply drinks and the movies. There will be food vendors there for lunch and dinner so bring cash. Evolved will once again be doing the inking and there will be a range of tattoo designs for those with money or size restrictions.
Finally, the t-shirt design is currently in production by the amazing Colin Rigsby of Hard Labor design and will soon be unveiled. Once they are up on the website, you will have until June 30th to order them. A very limited few will be available on the day of the event.
Weekly Update: 3/12/10
Above is an Awesomefest 2010 tattoo sketch by our co-founder, Mr. Jay Jordan. Pretty rad I’d say.
There are two updates this week. The first is that we set a date. August 14th is official, so mark your calendars. Second, we have SIX designers designing unique Awesomefest posters for this years event! These bad boys are sure to be gorgeous. Each design will be printed in a limited run with all the proceeds going to Asia’s Hope. As they start to roll in, I will post them here.
