Rosco's tattoo

Tattoo I did a few months back for bmx rider Rosco from Central Green / Tons of Fun...
The Bonsai is a sketch he did a few years back and the other elements are things he wanted to add,
He just gave me the concept and sketch and I put my own twist on it.

The Queen of Rockabilly


Keeping with the music theme from yesterday morning, but nothing really to do with Comic Book or Fantasy Art, here's some photos and a video of Wanda Jackson, the Queen of Rockabilly. Born in 1937, she began her music career in 1954, she hit it big in 1960 with her recording of "Let's Have a Party." She continued into the 1970's with a string of country and gospel music hits. She has been enjoying a revival of late, appearing at music festivals and with musician Jack White.
