Aby-a-Day – 25 September: My new tattoo (Cartoon Tuesday)

Today we started work on my memorial tattoo of Gun-Hee and Logan. Yesterday, Linus, my artist, sent me the above outline drawing…

…and this complete drawing- I was blown away. Linus thought that just their heads worked better as a tattoo than showing their whole bodies…and he was right.

Here is the tattoo after the lines were done.

Linus working. He wanted to make sure he looked “ugly” before I took the photo.

And here is Gun-Hee’s part done completely with blue shading. On 10 October, Logan will get coloured in and it will be finished.
