Illustration Friday - Craving



this is kinda corny but let's face it, what do most people crave? why, heart-shaped rubies of course! Ok, not that...we crave love love love...

the tattoo on her left arm was inspired by Mike Tyson's face tattoo - how many people can say they were artistically inspired by Mike Tyson today?

Not too many, I'd imagine. Certainly not me. But I LOVE the painting. The heart itself really isn't necessary, because we can FEEL her longing, just by looking at her, but then the heart too is really beautiful. The whole thing is. Sigh.... (and that's a good sigh)

Not many, I would wager. i would be inspired to punch him hard and leg it :-). Thanks for the image, truly beautiful and evocative.
