I received a phone call recently that was a bit of a surprise. In fact it was so surprising that if it had come roughly two months from now, I would have guessed it was an April Fools Day prank.
The caller was a gentleman from Boston who is an executive with a prominent business magazine. He told me that his wife is a ballet dancer by profession and she had read my blog. He further explained that he and his (at-that-time) fiance liked my 'Dancing Moose' illustration very much, and wondered if I'd mind if she had a tattoo created based upon the logo/illustration. He assured me it would be placed in an area where only she and he would see it.) (The mind runs quickly to images of where that might be...but I didn't ask.)
He asked how much I would charge for the use, and I told him I was simply flattered to know that he and his wife enjoyed my moose enough to have it reproduced in such a unique manner.
Well, flash-forward a few weeks to after their recent honeymoon: She went ahead with it. I later received a photo of the 6-inch tattoo...and here it is, 'in the flesh'.
To the caller, (who, at his request, will remain anonymous here): Thanks for taking the time to contact me and let me share in the fun.
