Put a Branch on It
Last year, Alisha came in to see me about covering up an old tattoo that she had on her right foot. The details are a little fuzzy now, but we settled on an evergreen branch with a pine cone, for the imagery. I did the drawings but life interfered, as it sometimes does, and she was not able to come in to have the work done until several months had gone by; then she contacted me earlier this year to say she was ready to complete the project. Luckily I keep all of my drawings, and I was delighted to hear from her. I think the final piece turned out very well and I'm happy that she is pleased with the outcome.
