My friend, art collector and writer Jordan Rothacker commissioned me to do a piece for a new tattoo he is getting on his arm. Jordan had the idea of wanting just deer antlers with flowers intermingled. We met at local favorite Old Pal, had a beer and discussed antlers and flowers. I sketched each flower and the antlers in graphite individually. I then scanned the images and put the final design together in Photoshop. This was to allow for any adjustments that Jordan would want. Once he okayed the final design, I then transferred it back to some nice Arches hot-pressed paper (my favorite) and colored it with gouache. I just finished it and I think it’s going to look pretty sick as a tattoo. I can’t wait to see it inked in!
