Velveteen

Last year, a lady named Mia contacted me after seeing some of my paintings displayed at the Picasso Boutique Hotel. She found out that I did tattoos as well and wanted me to customize a watercolor tattoo piece for her. The concept revolved around The Velveteen Rabbit, one of her favorite childhood books, and, if you know me at all, you'll know that I'm obsessed with children's picture books as well and was therefore excited. At some point our emails waned--life sort of got in the way.

Months later she emailed me again and here's what happened: we both got pregnant! And so a tattoo wasn't possible for the time being, and she instead commissioned me to a little piece for her baby's nursery, still imbibing the Velveteen Rabbit concept, along with her cat in it.

I hope you like it, Mia! Have a safe delivery! :)
