^ that is so freakin' great. i love all the tagging you did on the ninjas. congrats on a successful night, shawn!


shawn had asked me what i wanted for the custom and i noticed that they had the red marker out. since i love red and black together, i wanted something in red. at the same time, i told him that the custom should fit the red. then this one scene from this one samurai movie popped into my head and that lead me to suggest perhaps he could draw one ninja slicing another ninja in half. i think shawn was taken back by the suggestion a little since it was a bit too violent. but he was a trooper and did a great job and did a fantastic shawnimal spin on it.

truth be told i didn't know if i could harnass the power of the evil inside my brain to depict a ninja murder. but with james' help, i accomplished the task! :) thanks for the nice words, james and pink.

It's so nice, and so gruesomely cute! I was initially so startled by that one, but I was relieved when Shawn assured me that everything was cool, because it was all a dream...! See the sleeping ninja at the bottom? Phew!!
:D :lol:

Thank goodness it was just a dream! Thanks for pointing that out Jenn. I was getting worried about Shawn. I thought all the crazy work he has been doing lately and the stress of it all was making him into a psycho killer or something like that. What a relief! :wink:
