SUZIE-Q FROM HALO HAIR SALON !

Suzie is the hardest work'n Gal I
ever met. I did these doodles for
her B-Day a few years back. If you
need a trim @ 3 am, she's the
Gal to call ! An Island full of
insomniacs has its benefits !

THE PRESIDENT'S HOSTAGE~!

The following are 'Posters' that I made
for an idea I had back in the 1990's. Lots
of notes exist in the journal for this one,
but the story lacks a central driving
focus. It is basically about a President
who takes himself Hostage in a News
Room, seals the place off, and then
confesses to the American people
what a Phony Puppet he is with
a gun to his head & a bottle of
Scotch to his lips. He reveals
the Secret Government
cabal that really pulls
the strings, and blathers
about his own 'sacrifices',
or, How He Sold Out, to
become 'The Most Powerful'
blah blah blah. The full color
version is a collage made out
of cut up Time magazines...

Final design below. The face of
the Guy's Wife to be placed within
the Crystal Ball from a photograph.
I hope they didn't get divorced ! I
mean, who wants to get stuck
with TWO Dragons on their
shoulder !

ANATOMY OF A TATTOO DESIGN~ PART 5

So, in the 11th Hour, there was
a change of plan, which, apparently
happens often with Tattoo designs
because People don't realize they
are asking a lot of Artists to cram
so much info into a tiny space...




The NEW idea was much better...

To incorporate the Guy's wife into
the tat via a REAL photo; a picture
of just her face, inside a CRYSTAL
BALL held within the Dragon's
claw... But, there would be
a little more tweaking
even beyond the
Dragon below:



Tune in Tomorrow for the FINAL DESIGN !

ass Sword-wielding Babe !

ANATOMY OF A TATTOO DESIGN~ PART 2

These quick sketches of the Dude's Wife
are lame-o, but gives a little insight into
my process. I will draw LOTS of loose,
non-pencil sketches to 'get into' the
character or assignment (no puns
from you sickos out there... unless
it is REALLY funny) ;~j

ANATOMY OF A TATTOO DESIGN~ PART 1

Many Moons ago, a Guy in my
Welding Class commissioned
me to design a Tattoo for him

Dragon, and his Wife,
depicted as a Sword-
wielding Slayer...







Man, I knew right after these
initial few sketches~ this was
not gonna be an easy task !
