Scarecrow Tattoo



I got a call last month from local tattoo artist, EGO. He mentioned that he saw a picture of my Scarecrow design tattooed on somebody's arm. I had to see this for myself. The pic was in last month's issue of Tattoo Energy, #61. I finally tracked down the issue, and sure enough, there it was. Someone in Budapest, Hungary, has my Scarecrow on their arm. Crazy! The ink was done by Zsolt Sarkozi at dark Art Tattoo. The colors are a bit changed up. You can see the original piece here.


I thought I'd post a page from the sketchbook I did for that OZ show. In the sketchbook, I also included a passage from the original Oz story that I came across, while doing research for the show. This scene is one of my favorites, because it makes out the Scarecrow to be a bit of a bad ass. It describes him , in detail, protecting the group from a murder of crows. He stands in a Jesus Christ type pose, waiting for the crows to swoop in, and then starts to violently rip their heads off. Love it! That's a scene I want to see on the big screen.

Anyway, that's all I got for now. I've heard rumors of a bus driver in Seattle, that has the Lion design I did on his forearm. If he, or anyone else comes across it, send me a pic if you can. I'd love to see it.
