Tree Tattoo

A tattoo by any other name

  It’s been a long time since I’ve done any legitimate artwork. So when my sister asked how rusty my skills were, to design a tattoo we’d been talking about getting, I was understandably a bit hesitant. We’ve talked about getting matching tattoos for quite a while, and every time she visits, she jokes about how we should just go down to a local shop and get one. Now, I…

Did I bite off more than I can chew?

Some pretty exciting things are happening… after having not posted anything for over a year. I’m hoping to change that last bit. But I’ve said that before, I know.

LoCreShiMo 2017, Nov 9

I used to do a lot of vector art, where I would take a base photograph, reduce it to just the colors that I wanted to use, and then simplify and tweak the lines as needed. Some pics would take hours, and some would take days. Unfortunately, I don’t really have days to spend on a single image for CreShi, so I had to keep this one fairly simple. I…
