Tattoo prep underway

Appointment is booked, deposit down, and prep for my next tattoo is underway.  

Basic idea: dilophosaurus fossil with bicycle parts. Black line. Similar to my other dinosaur and ancient reptile tattoo designs.

Skull study. I need to lengthen the weird notched part of the nose tip and jaw.

Playing with alternate designs. 

More on this as it goes. Appointment booked for my 45th birthday.

You enchant, fascinate, and thrill me. That rainy October evening 15 years ago has led us to so many incredible memories. I hope we have many more.

18km instead of the usual 4km. Perfect warm autumn weather for a bike ride. 

Rosedale Valley Rd > Don Valley > Martin Goodman Trail along the waterfront > up Bathurst St to home. My new Jamis bike is fantastic.

Alien Spy Drone

Alien spy drone for #inktoberday9. I had a picture in my head and tried to draw it. 

i wanted to draw something we wouldn’t understand by looking at it. The concept would probably work better if I had it floating in a Norman Rockwell-esque Main Street kind of scene. Kid walking his dog, store owner sweeping out front and here’s this weird thing.  

Hmm. 

Ankylosaur-Minotaur - Inktober 7

Ankylosaur-Minotaur is bleating and wishes to box you. Clean fight, no scute-knuckles.  

This is #Inktober number 7. Sketched a terrible little feathered dinosaur standing on its own tail and a Charizard Mega X (for my son) before doing this fine fellow.
