Finally getting to finish this piece - directly taken from John James Audubon’s Swallow Tailed Kite. I’ve always been drawn to this print, both for the striking silhouette and the fact that I’m a sucker for any image of animals grappling in strife. Thanks Kyle for the opportunity to breath some life into this image onto your leg!
I happened to meet Allison because she’s dating Josh. I have to say, after getting to know her and Josh over dinner I was just hugely impressed with her. She owns a beautiful yarn store in Downtown Grand Junction called Tangle, organizes a free clinic once monthly for people who don’t have the money to go get medical care at a hospital, is on the board in charge of business and development of Grand Junction which organizes street festivals and farmers markets all year round, oh… and has 2 beautiful children. How she manages to balance everything is simply amazing, but one thing is for sure - she’s great people. Go look at her store online and hop on Facebook and like her page. Allison is a great person and I’m super glad I got to meet her through Josh on this amazing journey.
