Final phoenix tattoo design for my lovely friend Ahna. It’s been a while since I got cozy with colored pencils, but I’m quite pleased with the result. This is a private client design, so please do not re-use for any purpose :)
Here’s to glorious new beginnings - may life emerge from death and destruction.

A classy little rose tattoo design for a friend. You’ll have to forgive me I don’t remember what the arabic lettering translates to.

I didn&#8217;t get around to sharing this final product, but here&#8217;s the telecaster I woodburned last October for Ritzy of The Joy Formidable. Thanks to Dan Mancini for this opportunity and the photo.

This elephant is a tribute to my client Monica’s late grandmother. Elephants are such powerful maternal creatures, it felt very appropriate.

I drew a gibbon skull! Just like little people with big eyes and fangs.

A new piece I did all for myself. Sometimes client work just has to take the back burner for a second.
