I was commission to do this piece using the client herself as the Pinup Model. She told me she wanted tough but sexy. Armed with that, I took the photos she sent plus stalked her profile a few times and noted her beautiful red hair and square features........Celtic! This appealed to me as I am an Irishman myself. So, I ran with all of that blended in some Irish, Scottish and a little Welsh....all of it Gaelic. I even put in some Celtic Runes that all have positive and empowering meaning around the shamrock in the background....All in all, this piece was a LOT of fun to do!
Thanks for watching, Y'all! On to the next!
