An email from the client, in regards to his tattoo which we've called the "Unseen Heart".
Thank you (and thanks to Peter) for sending the initial drawing, it's great to be able to begin this conversation ahead of my trip home. I work as a Production Manager in Theatre and am used to having in-depth conversations with designers, so - as this email may become lengthy - it's only because that's how I'm used to working!
I've attached a number of additional reference images that should assist in the development of this piece; I'll also give a little personal background for 'patient history'. I'm formally trained as a Physiologist (got my degree at UofT, actually), which explains my interest in old Anatomical Drawings, but left to join the 'Circus' because it proved to be a more entertaining day job. Each of my family members have had a Ladybug put on them as a reminder of our/my sister who passed away some years ago - so that little detail is pretty important to me.
Again, my thanks to both you and Peter for taking the time to work 'long-distance' with me in advance of my appointment. I look forward to seeing how this piece evolves and chatting again over the next draft. Please let me know if any additional imagery, information, or even just a phone call would help in any way.
- Andrew M.
