Curvy Mermaid

When I start sketching for fun lately, mermaids tend to appear.

Also, check out this cool tattoo Jenn Wallin got of one of my sketches, done by the talented Danielle Distefano at 13 Roses Tattoo Parlor in Atlanta! Thanks Jenn for letting me post it. :)

ah neat! i think that's the highest praise an artist can get when someone permanently inks said artists work on to their body. it came out really nice!

Lovely sketch as always! The weight seems so natural.

Damn cool on the tattoo. That means someone is going to have your art on her body forever! How cool is that?!

That ink is awesome. I love how different arts interact - Sarah liked Gitogito Hustler enough to do a cool sketch of them, and Jenn liked the sketch enough to have it turned into a tat. Cool chain of inspiration there. A lot of my music is inspired by things from other arts - it's fun to see the same thing here.
