Wish me luck

I have done the deed and finally posted my submission to the tattoo flash supplier for their consideration.

Despite the fact that the girls were ready to send of about 3 weeks ago I have only just managed to get them printed and a letter of introduction printed.

I won't bore/disgust you with the details but suffice to say that I have had a very frustrating and painful few weeks. I reached the point yet again where I was close to giving up drawing altogether.  I get so fed up with trying to desperately juggle all of my responsibilities and my art is the lowest priority.

However I have picked myself up again and got those lovely ladies in an envelope. They went in the post box 30 mins ago so now the waiting begins.

I really wish I could post the full images on here instead of just cropped versions but until I know where I stand I can't risk it.

I will now spend some time finishing Fortuna and Tyche and make a start on the other girls in the series. Plus some other work that I have promised to friends - a portrait of an alsatian, a picture of my friend downhill biking and a pin up commision.  All have been started but never finished and if nothing else I need to alleviate some guilt for making my dear friends wait so long. I will at least be able to post those pictures here.

So fingers crossed for the safe arrival of my girls and that they will impress enough to get me the gig.  I know a few people don't approve of what I am doing because I am not a tattooer and therefore not considered qualified to design tattoo flash but wish me luck just the same, yeah?
