Animal Spirits-My Totem Pole by Wylethorn Animal Spirits-My Totem Pole by Wylethorn
I got this idea of a dream I had a few days back.
I had a totem pole tattoo'ed on my back it was huge.
And since I've always wanted to have one done. I decided to sit down and recall as much as i could on that dream.

I did some research on waht animal spirits represented me the most and I came up with this.

This art is amazing. We must be very similar these are my exact spirit animals. If you wouldnt mind id like to get this exact piece tattooed on me. I wanted to get your permission out of respect for your work.

I was just wondering if i could have permission to use this for commercial use and to edit and adapt this image?

Hi Wylethorn, I was just wondering if there's any chance I could get permission from you to create a derivative work from this piece? It's for a flyer for a party in London I'm helping with - I'm designing the flyer, getting paid 50 quid for it which is nothing really considering the work I'm putting in, it's a small party with no real profit involved and I would be using the work this once only, plus I could add a credit on the flyer if that would help?

Here's a link to the work (in progress), it's meant to be more of an alienish creature (there will be other layers to reinforce the effect) although it could be viewed both ways :)


If not that's no problem at all, and I won't use it otherwise of course!

Best Regards,

Did you read my last comment? I would actually be willing to paypal you some money to do this! only instead of a scorpion I was thinking that maybe the bottom two animals be a chameleon and praying mantis

This is amazing!!! Just wondering is there any possible way for you to make something similar to this?! I would like the two bottom animals to be a chameleon and scorpion!

Hi Justin, Thanks for for the kind words. I was away for the year without much use of the internet. Let me know if you're still keen on doing something up.
Thank for checking out this piece.
All the best.

my eyesight for totem poles isn't the best.. what animal spirits are in this particular design?

what animals are all in this totem pole?
Mtorzillo Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012
You came up with the exact design I have been looking for! Your talent is superb! Would there be a chance you could draw me up some tattoo designs for a half sleeve I would like to get? That's if I gave you some ideas to go off of...

Would you mind if I subtly used this for a design on a website?
