„The Challenge Stag“

from the gallery of Patricia Howitt

High in the mountains the stag roars his challenge.

This piece has an interesting history. A few years ago I was approached by a deerstalker to design a tattoo for his back. He already had the head tattooed on his left shoulder-blade and wanted to have the body as well – reaching full across his back and down to his waistline.

All I had to work on was a few photos of his back, so it was quite tricky. And after I provided the artwork I believe he had some problems with the tattooist getting it just right, though I think he ended up pleased with the result.

Recently, I added my own version of the head, and the mountain, to the body that had been sitting meantime in my portfolio.

Graphite pencil.
