Illustration Friday: Tattoo


After working with the image for a while and watching the new movie "Zathura", it inspired me to create a nastalgic drawing. Thus, I colored it in Photoshop as an old sepia tone photograph complete with the white border. The heart of the tatoo is the only thing in color since this week's word is "tatoo". Notice the grease dripping off the spatula. Ham and eggs anyone?

Fabulous grin!

IMHO, there's a special place in heaven for short-order cooks.

And if I'm lucky someday I'll get to try their angelic biscuits and red-eye gravy.

You can meet this guy at Fatso's, a little greasy spoon situated inside Willee's Blues Club in Santa Fe, NM. He'll make you an out of this world eggplant parm the size of a fat man's thigh, and you just hope his ubiquitous cigarette didn't ash in the food!
