I lost a friend May of 2014, who was a wonderful artist and one of the sweetest men I had ever known. His work can still be seen at: http://wreckles.deviantart.com
I can't really speak much on this. He was to meet me so that I could make sure the dragon I was drawing for his next tattoo would work where he wanted it. He did not show up for the meeting, the next day I found out he was dead. So... I finished his tattoo as a full painting, to try and express in any way I can how dear he was to me.
Watercolor, colored pencils, acrylic, crushed mica paint, pieces of mica stone with metallic pigments melted over it.
The original is not available. Limited edition prints were made, contact me to see if they are still available.
