Tattoo of Art Work

Hi!  So last week I received an email from a guy in Mexico.  He was looking for a hummingbird image to tattoo on himself, his mom loves hummingbirds, and he came across my piece online and he's gotten it tattooed on his chest!
I am pretty pleased that he did contact me, I would have been none the wiser otherwise.  I felt shocked, maybe a bit of "hey, copyright!"  but ultimately pretty darn flattered.  That's my art on someone's skin now. Permanently.  It also made me remember that I was working on a Mecha hummingbird series a couple of years ago and I really should do something about them. Like colour them digitally and sell online.  
I really should approach tattoo parlours and see if I can sell my work to them.  That said, I don't have any tattoos myself, so I feel a bit like a fraud if I do that.
What else has been happening.....
I have so many projects I want to do and there just doesn't seem like enough time to do them all and I also want to do new thing…

Seclusion Portrait during Covid 19

Hi all! How has everyone been?  In case people didn't know, Melbourne Victoria Australia is currently in Stage 4 lockdown and has been since August 09.  It's not due to lift until Sept 13...probably.  It depends on the numbers. Stage 4 here means doing all shopping and exercise within a 5km radius, 8pm-5am curfew and no family or friends visiting or meeting up, unless they already live with you...oooh and all non-essential businesses were shut down.  My partner's workplace has been affected by that. You can read more about all the rules here.  Am kinda paraphrasing at the moment and the rules can change at any given moment.I was asked to contribute a self-isolation portrait by The Lovepost, as an artist experiencing lockdown in Victoria.  Check out the article here and all the other awesome artists that contributed.I live in Regional Victoria, so we're only on Stage 3 restrictions....not that it makes much of a difference.  We just don't have the curfew and the 5km…

Home Sweet Skull Home and other stuff

Hi!  How have things been?  I've been fairly busy with work and updating my Redbubble Shop.  The mermaid above was one of my personal favorites for this year.  Combination of hand drawn and then edited in Photoshop.  I think it turned out pretty well! I am slowly, slowly updating my shop. I'll get there eventually.
Things feel a bit tense and somewhat depressing since Melbourne is at Stage 4 restrictions.  It's a real bummer being in the State of Australia where the virus has gone out of control.  I miss seeing my family, friends and visiting cafes and restaurants.  I hate the current situation and am sure that am not the only one.  It could be worse of course but I would rather not think about that.
Otherwise, myself, my partner and my cat are all doing well.
