A Butterfly and Her Messenger God






A pair of drawings my friend Stephanie. During our recent poker game, I managed to lose my money pretty early, and Steph offered her back as a canvas, to which I took advantage, with a butterfly. She liked it so much, she got me to draw something on her ankle, and I decided to draw a wing, symbolic of the messenger God Hermes, who had winged sandals. Or, of the Flash. Whichever :P

Thanks to Steph, for lending her back and ankle. Hope you like them.

Hey, thanks!

I really like drawing on people, it's a really nice medium for art... I seriously respect people who do tattoos and stuff, even though I only use marker :) When this damned Canadian winter goes away, I'm totally going to be doing more tattoo designs.

What is it that you're thinking of getting, tattoo wise?

I actually had the idea for a tattoo like that! wings like Hermes! And your blog was the only thing that came up on google so I guess that it's still kinda original ;)
