I thought this was a great Illustration Friday topic this week; I had fun :) I’d love to design a tattoo.
‘No Fear,’ Pen and ink and Sakura Microns on Bristol Board, 6″ x 9″
Here’s the pencil drawing I started with. You can also see some of my reference material for this image. I had a lot of fun researching tattoos and knew that my tattoo had to have flames and a skullâ€¦
Have a good weekend.
Excellent idea and execution. I think you could design a great tatoo.
I really like this… and pretty much everything about it!
very funny. i like it!
how cool is this! so much funâ€¦ once again, beatiful work.

your style is very unique, the detail in your drawings set them apart, i love your imagination and best of all you explain your process… the playdough penquin rules!
Excellent illustration and great idea to share with us its schetch.
I love it.
You work fast! Great illo and take on “tattoo”!
I really like this! The skull reminds me of those old american tombstones that have the skulls and birds etc carved into them. I also like the contrast between detail of the skull image, and the cartoon qualityof the little dude.
Really enjoyed your illustration; Wonderful perspective.

love the little guy holding the balloon/tattoo – Great perspective too!
Beautiful – and ugly! great!
Great work !
This would make a great tattoo, but it would have to be on some very scary looking person. It also makes a wonderful balloon. Great job…love those micron oens:>
Wonerful, a littel Mexican day of the dead meets Russian matryoshka in an imaginary world of helium.
What a great illo. I love seeing other artist’s set ups.
Cool spooky skull! I love the contrast between the realistic skull, and and your super fun characters.
Love the line work. Keep it up.
Also reminds me of Jose Guadalupe Posada’s great work. See some at:

It is indeed a very original illustration for this week, something refreshing, I like your style… thanks for your comment on my illustration as well.

Superb! Very much in Edward Gorey’s style but you are more free in your own style.

I love it! Skulls and flames, too funny!
The Sakura Microns make my life a better place!!
You have a unique style! Really amazing! And this is a great piece.
The varied textures add a lot of depth and make the piece come together.
I also like the fact that you take pics of your production process. I’ve been thinking about doing it myself.
