Shortly after giving him my third tattoo ever, a Sailor Jerry mom anchor, Nate asked me to draw up a lantern with rosebuds to memorialize a close friend who’d passed on too early in life.  

The original version was shaded heavy black, with only the flame in color. I picked this one outta the very front of my sketchbook & livened it up with some bright colors on this dreary-ass Friday.

Karissa Monica has her hand in cookie jars all over Asbury. She’s the Assistant Creative Director at triCityNews, a tattoo apprentice at Attractive Tattoo on Main Street and also works the door at Toast on Cookman Ave. Karissa is no doubt a kick ass now, take names later artist and also worked with Anchor editor Jason Thomson on The Anchor Map Project – a hand drawn promotional map of Asbury with all of our favorite stomping grounds listed on the back.
