  • A tattoo and sticker design...

    This one was kind of an odd request for a friend. He is into woodworking and wanted an illustration of him turning wood on a lathe. His business is making pens and pencils on the lathe. This was all his 'vision' he just needed me to put it on paper for him.

    He wants to use the illustration for a decal for his truck and also for a tattoo that he has been wanting to have done.

    He was thrilled with how it turned out and I was too. I know (and so does he) that it won't have near as much detail in the 'tat', but the sticker should turn out pretty cool I think.

    It's all done in illy with the exception of the woodgrain in the word 'SAWDUST'.



    So, there you have it...whadda ya think?

    I think the pen in the middle should have more of a woodgrain on it.
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

      it's a great illustration. I like the wood shavings around the word 'sawdust'. Nice touch.

            I love the illustration, but the tool being used is called a gouge, and it's normally used for the rough beginning work on a wood turning, while other tools are used to do the finer finishing work. The pen being turned seems to be in the final stages of turning, just prior to sanding. If you were to use a gouge at that point, it would chew the pen to shreads. At least, that's the way I understand it. However, the gouge is a more recognizable wood turning tool, so perhaps it is appropriate in this case.
