inked in the dmv

I pulled up to the DMV to find your car, old and shedding its window tinting, beside me. I scoffed at the coincidence and assumed it was another’s, but I spoke too soon. Your indifferent glare found me inside. I took my ticket and swore under my breath as we refused to look at one another. You asked if I too was there to renew a license. I replied, saying I wish I could renew my life. Now I drive away when I see your car in the parking lot.

Finally finished the Vegeta piece. Can’t wait to wait to framed this. Got to cop a couple more from the plug. I wish some of the yellow would have been less transparent over the black ink but icy either way. My homie powered up. 

Still waiting for the ink to dry but the Vader piece is now complete. I want to make a star wars and dbz collection by the end of the month. Now is the time to pump out work. Got mad shows coming up this summer.
