home is wherever im with you...a tattoo!!

hi and oh happiest of thursday to you all! first, off i want to thank everyone regarding my post yesterday. this community is so wonderful and i am so happy to be a part of it, thank you.

 today i am super duper excited to share with you a design i just completed. as some of you know i just recently started offering tattoo design. a bit ago the lovely larissa emailed me about getting a tattoo design.
 we discussed what she wanted, she sent me images of things she liked and then i got down to business. i did about 4-5 rough sketches of the idea i had in mind and then sent those to her to have a looksy. the last drawing i did ended up being my favorite and hers too.
 
 i was so happy. it is always so nerve racking to put yourself out there and have people view your work, even now as i am typing this i am nervous about sharing but i love doing this so much i just can't help but share.

i had so much fun designing larissa's tattoo. what i love about drawing tattoo's for others is that it opens me up to designing things that i normally wouldn't draw. as an artist we always need to be challenged otherwise we can never grow. that also goes for being just a human too, if we don't challenge ourselves we can never discover new things about ourselves.

life as an artist is an interesting and wonderful journey even with all the stress & nervous butterflies i get about expressing myself through my work it is all worth it and i wouldn't have it any other way.

xo,
cb
