Brian's tattoo, part 1

My friend Brian asked me to design a tattoo for him, which he wanted to get before heading out to California and beyond. No pressure, but ya know, he's going to have MY DRAWING on his back for the rest of his life...I wanted to make something worthy of that kind of compliment. Many conversations and multiple sketches later, here is the design.

The full moon, mountain range, and twisty tree are all images from Yosemite (that's Vogelsang Peak on the right). That's a bass guitar neck in there. The overall design idea was inspired by a t-shirt I found in Thailand.

He was successfully tattooed last night, and it looks fantastic. The rest of the story will follow as soon as I get the photos downloaded.
