Today I </3 U ALWAYS, my 4 inch KidRobot Mini Munny custom is for sale in my shop at emilybee.bigcartel.com! I </3 U Always was originally made for my two-person exhibit "Fantastic Heroes" at The Trace Gallery in December 2011.
The roses on this piece were inspired by traditional Sailor Jerry-esque rose tattoos, as roses symbolize love + tattoos are forever. Roses are beautiful, yet have thorns that hurt. Tattoos are also beautiful, yet hurt to get done. Sometimes beauty + pain go hand in hand.
