Ballad Of A Lonely Man


It seems these days you can't hang unless you have a tattoo. As much as I love most tattoo art, I can't bring myself to get one. A friend of mine relates the new tattoo trend to the *Star belly sneetches*. Soon it will be the trend not to have one.

really cool. Love the anatomy, and the warm/cool lighting. And it looks like some Adam Ford has crept in here - and I mean that in a good way.

Kat said...

ok, the tattoo from the picture is just.... horrible.
but your illustration is super!

David Malan said...

I support your tattoo idea, think about it, you could just take off your shirt and turn around to entertain your kids for hours. PLease understand though that you can never hang.
Oh, the painting is mmmmmmmmm okay, wait, no it's nice, it's nice.

Dave, do you think I can hang if I get one of those 3 digit wrist tattoos they give out over at Daybreak?

David Malan said...

First of all it's 5 digits and a computer chip behind the ear, and second no, well maybe but probably not.

i would agree with your friend's theory on the star belly sneetches... this will come and go just like everything before it. the emperor has no clothes.

great image.

Hey Dillon: has anyone ever told you that you should go into art? You're really great at making pictures. Seriously. You should think about it.

Come on I have known about that TAZ tattoo on your ass for years! Who are you tryin' to kid about not having any! It was great seeing your family on the 4th. Let me know when you guys want to get a BBQ on (katm1980@hotmail.com)
