Happy New Year folks! Here’s to 2013, and here’s to you! The best is yet to come.
I’m already crying so lets just get this done.
Above is my memorial tattoo for my wife who passed away on 1st Feb 2012 after a year long battle with cancer. She was 31.
I got it about 2 weeks ago by Sarah at Ashton Studio, with the main image based on a beautiful painting by Kevin Dart / Tumblr, called Off Duty Ninja. I’ve always loved this image, but after Andrea’s passing I knew instantly that I wanted it as a tribute to her.
She loved the original illustration as well, but to me it perfectly captures all the aspects of who she was and what it is I loved about her. She was a tremendously strong and inspirational warrior. She possessed unbelievable courage and strength, but she was also peaceful and calm whilst always being ready for battle at any moment. She was fucking incredible.
Incorporated into the surrounding frame are Hello Kitty, Totoro, Jack Skellington and Smiley the psychotic button, all of which were things Andrea loved and cherished dearly. The frame and shading are all finished, but I’ll be getting colour on the main Off Duty Ninja part next week. Everything on this tattoo has meaning for me, I even got it on her Birthday as a present to her.
I love it. It looks way better than I’d ever imagined and it’s giving me a ton of strength and comfort. I know Andrea would have loved it too.
My heartfelt thanks to Sarah for the tattoo and to Kevin for the emails of support, and for creating a wonderful piece of art. Eternally grateful dude. Thanks also to those on tumblr who knew of my situation and offered very kind words in support, I appreciate it tremendously. I’ve tried writing tribute posts to her before, but they just ain’t coming yet, so hopefully in time I’ll be able to.
2011 - My most popular posts.
2011 was easily the shittiest, hardest and most stressful year of my life and truthfully I’m glad to see the back of it. Personal issues aside though, I created my tumblr as an escape from all of that and a means to just switch my brain off for a bit and focus on something else. It’s turned into something I now love with a deep passion and honestly I doubt I’ll ever stop.
This being my first blog of any kind I literally had no idea how addicted I was going to get. Seeking out art and other cool stuff and then sharing it has been so fulfilling and rewarding you’ve no idea. It’s helped me keep my sanity and happiness that’s for sure. Long story short, I’m having an absolute blast on tumblr.
I’m extremely grateful to everyone who’s checked out my blog, especially those who’ve enjoyed any of my posts over the past year. I’m hugely indebted to all who’ve helped in supporting my humble little blog all this time, and I’m also incredible thankful to all the artists I’ve featured along the way. You’ve each created awesome and wonderful things which I’ve loved finding and sharing, so thank you.
I also never expected to meet such incredibly nice and friendly people on here either. Bloggers and followers, from all walks of life, who’ve taken the time to say hi and get to know me a bit. I appreciate every single one of you believe me.
All that being said, I gotta give some shout outs to people that I’ve enjoyed following in 2011. LuluBonanza, Posterocalypse, HeyOscarWilde, IanBrooks, Powerdrain, HelloZombie, Towritelesbiansonherarms, SpokeArt, Geeksngamer, Elyshatheriddell, Nerdcandy, CapnTrips, InsanelyGaming, TotalFilm, Cromeyellowweb, Fanaticalmind, Koldunkisloty, dcwomenkickingass, masterofkarateandfriendship, iamthedeadpool, TheFrogMan, JuliaSegal, TheStray, JoshuaOwen, AssortedGoodness & 8bitmonkey.

Generated using the best of tumblr tool. Not the words though, dems all mine.
Normally my cat, Azumi, sleeps by my side most nights. Tucked up in my armpit, truth be told, kinda gross, but it’s warm I guess.
A Couple of nights ago though she went for broke and attempted a full on face hugging sleeping position. Whiskers up my nose and mouth was not fun or comfortable, but I felt the love and so left her be.
Thankfully, it didn’t last too long before normal napping formation was resumed.
