We are excited to announce the 2022 Featured Artist--TeeJay Dill!

TeeJay is a particularly reclusive humanoid cryptid. As a child, she found her sanctuary in books where the illustrations that she met befriended and protected her. In exchange she vowed to do everything in her power to proliferate their kind and expand the fantastical realms. Since then she has attempted to fulfill this destiny by decorating and drawing on all sorts of things - even people if they sit still long enough. TeeJay has been tattooing professionally since 1991 and is the owner of both locations of White Tiger Tattoo (in Rochester & Webster, NY). 

Erika Lalita will be back with an extra large 10x14 chalk masterpiece!
