"I will cover aspects of my favorite mediums, tattooing and pen and ink drawing. I’ll go through my process, from start to finish, for both. I’ll discuss how each medium has influenced the other and show the ways in which the two connect, both in application and in theory. I’ll also cover some details of my newest venture into tattooing with the opening of Meadowlark, my one person tattoo studio in downtown Joseph. I’ll cover a few of the ins and outs of how the shop operates."- Tim Biedron
