Well, maybe- and it's not from some of Splinter's special tea. I'll explain.
I have this friend, Lynne. This Leo drawing is for her, or more accurately, her sister Marianne. As I understand it, Marianne's son is a Turtle fan and works at a place- I'm not sure if it's a quarry or a company that creates the actual monuments but anyways, at this place, I guess they have some kind of machine that can take images and can transfer them onto the surface of the headstone. This Leo was done expressly for that purpose- to be transferred on and etched into a marble tile. I'll let you know how it turns out.
As a note: Last year, I had a notion to try to do some etchings on marble. Lynne was great in hooking me up with two little 6 by 6 black marble tiles, and after locating a pencil that could actually draw on these things, I was in business. And that was as far as I got. A few weeks ago, I actually couldn't even remember where I stashed the tiles but I stumbled across them recently in the garage. Maybe now that I've blogged about it, that will be the incentive to actually get it done.
