The Girl with the Pigeon Tattoo

For my profile pic, I culled through years of pictures looking for one of myself that would be engaging (or at least not off-putting).  My wife Becky Quiroga Curtis, on the other hand, looks that good in every picture.  As if that isn’t enough, she’s got buckets of talent, brains for miles, and a heart as big as the ocean.

If you’re part of the children’s book world, you know that Becky Quiroga Curtis is kind of a big deal.

One day Damien Hirst will preserve her illustrating arm in formaldehyde, but in the meantime Becky will meet amazing illustrators, have them draw her favorite characters on her arm, and then get those characters permanently inked by Dicky Magoo.  Sure I’ve covered some of these tattoos before, but it’s a brand new Sweet.  That gives me a great excuse to share some never-before-seen photos.

Look for posts labelled “Becky’s Arm.”

  1. My God! I hope she’s not a fan of Graeme Base..if she met him, the tattoo work could bankrupt her!!!!

    Seriously, I’m lovin’ the pigeon ink. If I could’ve met up with him before he became ill, Wallace Tripp would have been top of my list!
