beautiful bird.


You might remember this illustration that I did for my big brother's birthday. He asked me to draw a bird that he could get tattooed to represent his daughter, because the name Evelyn means "beautiful bird". We decided on a hummingbird because they're tiny like her, and they're so colourful.

Well, a couple of days ago, he got it done! Scott did an amazing job, the colours are beautiful and it looks great in that position. I want it done now, too!

  5. Wow! I designed a little illustration once that a friend has tattooed... it feels pretty special to know that someone out there has a bit of your handiwork on their body forever!

    Tattoos are ever better when they have a special meaning.

    You're a wonderful artist Lyzi :-)
