Recently, I decorated a replica of the "Cow Parade" statues from Chicago for a friend's gal's birthday present. It was one of the most challenging surfaces I ever had to draw on, given the contour of the surface and the fact that the ink never really dried until I sealed it. Aside from a tiny bit of paint, the entire job was done with colored Micron pens. My friend's lady is a teacher. So we decided to have one side of the cow have a theme of school and the other side have a theme of summer. I am glad I took on a little project like this. It reminds me that sometimes big challenges come in small jobs. All in all, it was a really fun project. My buddy asked me to sign the piece with the pen name, "Jeff Cowpatrick".
