Me and my husband both love it! We also both love tattoos, but so far don't have any (i'm too indecisive to decide what I would like on my body for the rest of my life, and also a little scared) I have designed a few tattoos for other people. Here is one I designed for my husband:
You can find more of her work at www.salonserpent.com.
I just find her tattoo inspired paintings to be so beautiful, they seem poetic, sexy and macarbe.
The watercolour paper seems to resemble skin and the work is so precise; the colours so vibrant!
I have just done this image as a submission for a charity event called many tears animal rescue.
If your interested in submitting, and possibly getting your image printed onto t-shirts, totes are bags go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/jellybox/4313728532/ for more info!

The blue one was the first one that I made for myself. They look like a cute couple though hey?! I think they like each other, so it will be sad when the new owner comes to take the new one away!
It's the first thing I've made since learning to knit. I'm not so great at following patterns so I just made this one up, and alter it as I go along.
Still lots of things in my technique to improve on, but think i'm getting better, now to learn how to crochet properly! I started to teach myself the other week, my ultimate aim is to be able to make little arugumi creatures! I just love them!

Though I have to say I am hating the amount of cheap (though not always so cheap), nasty looking tat about for said St V day!
I was so impressed by the grotesque display at the co-op that I wrote this poem in homage!:
Bears suffocate in plastic bags,
Eyes stare vacantly,
Rows of clones march without intent
Hopefully they will be added to the competition soon, and when they are it would be fab if you voted for them at:
many thanking you's!

I've decided that on most days I will try and draw my day!
Basically I'll try to take time at the end of the day to reflect on my day by drawing images that pop into my head when I think of the day.
These will be very rough and ready, but are a way for my to keep up my drawing, and are also a pretty call way of recording your day!
So I did a range of photos a while back (summer time), and have just posted a selection of them on flickr. Take a peek if you fancy!
The photos exploring the emotions conjured up by the word home. How it can have positive or negative connotations, though traditionally the word house conjures up feelings of safety and comfort.
The card house is based on my memory of my first childhood house.

Hi guys! Here's another pic for the what i wore today group on flickr. It's giving me a good excuse to try and hone my skills. Tried a different style again for this one. Thought I'd have a bit more of a play on illustrator.
It's a little rough around the edges, but pretty happy with it!

New pic for the What I wore today pool on Flickr! Not liking the wobbly, uneven lines that occur after scanning in my images, even after using the trace option on illustrator, will try and improve my next one!
