She shares her little apartment with her boy Joey, a bright blue and white budgie who is a little camera shy. You can tell by the way she talks about him that she really enjoys his company and wouldn't trade him for any other bird out there. Therefore, it is only fitting that he be apart of a tattoo about her. Spencer plans to get a portrait of him, possibly on a branch, with "Nana" in classic script beside. Last week, Spencer and I attempted to catch some pictures of him as reference for his new tattoo. I have then taken it upon myself, without Spencer's knowledge or request (until he reads this) to begin designing and drawing little Joey. I started out drawing more basic birds, and then began sketching little Joey. These are some of my sketches so far, I think I am on the right track. Sorry for the poor quality, I had to use my point and shoot camera. Once I sketch more and have the chance to perfect and outline them I will scan them!
