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

  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

  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.
