Every time I get another batch of photos for my books, I squeal and do a happy dance. Today, I'm squealing over the wonderful Sean Herman of Alabama's Royal Street Tattoo.

My next tattoo tome, called "Color Bomb," will feature animated work, influenced by comic/cartoon imagery (think "new schoolish"). While Sean tattoos in a variety of styles, as seen here, his humor-filled illustrative work will fill pages in the book along with other favorites.

I'm a fan of Sean beyond his tattooing. He's an activist in a variety of causes, including the Free the West Memphis 3 movement, of which I am a part. His blog is a great read for social justice issues as well as art musings. And he's a good egg with a great spirit.

So without further mush, more goodness below from Sean Herman. Check his site for more.
