Sarah J. Coleman illustrates a tattooed mom for the Mother's Day issue of Her Nashville
magazine. The weekly woman's magazine covers a range of topics from fashion, weddings, and business to parenthood and humor. The Mother's Day issue includes several different takes on motherhood.
Coleman's illustration features a tattooed woman puckering her lips and winking flirtatiously over her shoulder. It was originally hand-drawn in pencil and then in black ink. The background is layered with textures from her collection of photographs. Coleman finished the illustration the day Elizabeth Taylor died and changed the woman's eye color to violet to honor the late iconic actress. The tattoo is in reference to a topic covered in the magazine, that mothers can still be sexy.
