Memorializing a Legend


I've recently discovered the love I have memorializing people. Ever the portrait I painted in January of my friend deceased aunt I've been looking for more people to memorialize and when I was asked to participate in a Sailor Jerry Tribute show I thought this was a great oppurtunity to commemorate a legend. The man revolutionized tattooing not just as a trade but also as an art form. I really love his flash art and wanted to incorporate in my piece in a big way, here's my sketch(above), final painting to coming real soon, and the show is November 12th, @ the Sailor Jerry store on 13th and sansom in Philadelphia, PA. Come out and satisfy your eyes.
