This weeks feature for my little series is Ben Gaboury, owner and operator of @scrimshawpottery. I photographed him a while ago for fun but this shoot kind of sparked my idea for this little project. Ben is a full time potter who makes some of the coolest mugs I’ve ever seen. He runs an Etsy shop and does 2 drops a month and if you don’t catch them on time, you’re screwed. Ben’s inventory sells out in minutes and when you get the product, you see why. During this shoot I sat with Ben and got to learn about his process and also got to learn about what got him inspired to take his craft full time. Super great dude and he’s living his life doing what he loves. Be sure to give him a follow and check out his work.
Anyone interested in being featured or know someone who would fit this project, please don’t hesitate to reach out! Hope you enjoy! -Mike
I still find it surreal that people actually want me to take their pictures! If you’ve booked a session with me, thank you so much for taking an interest in my work and trusting me to do your photos ❤️
Me trying to kick this depression in da butt. Life can truly suck and make you wanna give up. Dude I’ve been there and I’m there right now. Goal is not to let that negativity win. You’ve got this man. NO! WE’VE got this. Those negative thoughts are stopping you from being the person you were made to be. KICK EM IN THE BUTT AND TELL THEM THEY ARENT WORTH IT. You are a bomb babe and always know that. Your illness does not define you.

We love Disney stories. *Except they lost Spider-Man from Sony.
“Haste makes waste,” is a saying I grew up hearing, and it’s so true for pen and ink drawing. Like I mentioned in my last YouTube tutorial, do your best to not rush. If you feel you’re starting to rush it’s best you stop, take a break, or go work on something else.
I know, usually even the slowest pencil drawings are much faster than a typical pen and ink drawing because you’re building your drawing, one line at a time. But still, just slow down, enjoy (and respect) the process, and focus on building the consistency of your strokes, and your drawings will thank you
