It's been too long :(

Sorry for the lack of updates....I haven't had much time to draw, paint, or even doodle. However, I took the day off work on Monday and spent the whole day working on designs for my CafePress store. Please check it out to see some of the new designs.

tattoo design

My friend Kim asked me to design a tattoo for her. She really wanted her kids initials (J & A) using an elvish font. She was hoping to incorporate their birth dates as well (10/2 & 10/7). She wasn't sure how to bring all of this together, so that's when she called me in. Since she is a big Lord of the Rings fan I decided to incorporate a design from the movie.

This is the cleaned up vector image.
