From the midst of inspiration, I quickly sketched out a very rough sleeve tattoo design composed of my personal favorite paintings and prints. You can see... Mead Schaffer's "Monte Cristo", Goya's "The Sleep of Reasons Produces Monster".. and if you look carefully you'll find the incubus from Henry Fuseli's "The Nightmare". And my cat on the lower right hand side!
I really want to do a master copy of classic paintings in a more gestural style.. with pencil, ink, and maybe washes. Another thing to add to the bucket list!
