"A sketchbook is a secret thing, a collection of unfinished and often times abandoned ideas never intended for public consumption—at least not in their current state. It’s a private space for honing one’s craft and workshopping, separating good ideas from those best left unexplored." -Brian Heater at The Daily Cross Hatch.

The Illustration that Wouldn't Die: Almost There
I decided to add a tattoo of a Kraken devouring a Spanish galleon. The eyes have become a major problem on this one and I'm almost at the point where I think the painting can't be salvaged. The placement of the eyes looked fine when I drew it, but now are so off balance with each other and asymmetric- I can't even look at this painting. I'll try and figure something out.
