Photo by Dabe Alan

By Erika Moen on September 8, 2011

About two years ago I stumbled upon this really awesome stop-mo video of a guy getting tattooed. Ch-ch-check it ouuuuut!


(There’s a Part Two and Part Three, too!)

Flash forward to this April and I met a very nice dude by the name of Dabe Alan at the Stumptown Comics Fest. It was a really brief encounter and so I was taken by surprise when we totally randomly ran into each other at the Good Food Here carts on Belmont in July. We made plans to hang out later and it was then, the third time we met up, that I realized I’d seen his tattoos before. Oh right! That video I’d favorited on Flickr from 2009! Man, small world, right?

It also turns out that he is this super amazing photographer! Holy crap, I mean seriously! How are those photos even possible? I don’t even know, man. I don’t even know.

So this was all a super long set-up to say; Hey! I am excited Dabe Alan took a photo of Matt and me with his Hasselblad camera and I wanted to show you.


Seriously, that’s it. That’s my whole story.
You’re welcome.
