Every mother's dream. How can you not love a kid who gets a tattoo like this? This piece started as part of an illustration challenge that I did with some illustrator pals. We tried to do a holiday sketch every day during the month of December last year. Here's the sketch I did back then:
I had to switch to a vertical format. At first, I didn't like the idea, but in the end, I wound up liking it better. So, I guess it's always good to keep an open mind. Tattoos, nose rings, vertical formats? I can't speak for anyone else, but sometimes I surprise myself with what I wind up liking!
