Great expression! Wonderful drawing!
He looks like he might have bad breath in which case I feel incredibly sorry for the person who tattooed him!

well, i'd like to thank you all for the wonderful comments… every one last one of you is too kind…but very inspiring… with this kind of love… i may just keep on making time for new drawings…

i wish i could tell you all a bit more about this guy… but he was based off of a doodle in a very old sketchbook… at least 25 years old… maybe more… when i saw hime i just had to finish him and he seemed perfect for this weeks topic…
