Tattoo and T-Shirt

Hey all, I received this in an email the other day, I thought it was really cool...

Brian James had this tattooed on his arm. It was done by artist Shannon Archuleta. I think she did a real bang up job, you can see more of her work here.

Here is the original image:

The original piece was altered a bit, but I think thats cool. If I had thought of making the creature a unicorn while I was drawing it, I probably would have. He is getting more work done, I'm not sure if it will be my work or not, but either way I can't wait to see it.

While we are on the topic of, ah, what is the topic exactly? I guess the topic is collaboration. While we are on the topic, I want to post this:

Its a photo of a shirt that Yves Neron of Ottawa made with one of my images, I think he did it with an iron on transfer, and I think its pretty badass... I meant to post this back in the spring, but, well, I'm not always good at posting stuff on here... I think I will be more diligent now that facebook and myspace are

I want to say too that if anyone wants my stuff tattooed or you want to make your own shirts for personal use with my images, anything like that, just go for it... I don't want money and you don't have to ask for my permission or anything like that, just send along an image when you are done so I can take a looksie cause stuff like this makes me feel good. Inside. It makes me feel good inside.

Thanks to Brian And Yves for making my day:)

Oh and Simone, I actually have no recollection at all of us talking about designing your next tattoo, it's likely that we had a few too many tallboys during that conversation, but of course I'd love too...:)
