Friends Not Food Commission

Client had wanted this tattoo which was roughly briefed through a sketch but was disappointed with their tattooist's version so commissioned me to illustrate, refined and colourised ready for the tattooist.

This was a quirky little illustration that was referred to me by a creative colleague of mine for a contact of hers. Her client has engaged a tattooist to create this image for her but was unhappy with their attempts so added to production board.

I sometimes feel a little uncomfortable illustrating commissions intended for tattooing onto people for a myriad of reasons; the most daunting reason—they will wear this on their own personal canvas until they are dead. Though the thought may erk me a little, I always admired their commitment to their passion and their appreciation for art and illustration. I have done several now and always make sure that I would be happy to wear the illustration permenently, and my client is happy with the finished product, then I am very prevaliged and humbled to be the author of that piece.
