In a burst of inspiration, I decided to personalize Animal's drums with the Coast Guard symbol, which my friend graduated to from our days toiling away with dirt and fertilizer at the greenhouse we worked at together in high school. I haven't told him how I used it in the painting yet, but Eddie graciously sent me a picture of his tattoo to work from. I can't wait to show him next time he's on land!
|Never painted from a tattoo pic before!|
|A bald Animal is just one step away from Beeker|
|Note the star I'd originally intended for the drums|
He just needs his chains and drums sticks!
