Last month I was asked by a friend to produce a wave design for a tattoo. Some of my designs, including the one she settled on, are similar to some of these, but of course, not as good.

Well thatís splendid. Something really has to happen to make a wooden block move like that. And thereís the Portuguese sky/sea pattern in there (almost).
