Jake Gets 1,500,000 Hits On His Taco Video!

13179333_1076011305775071_3720857042931935890_nThe counter keeps going up and up and up on his NowThis video… unfortunately his GoFundMe isn’t going up and up and up.

Even though Jake is AWAKE he’s got a long way to go before he’s out of danger. He needs a lot of physical therapy for everything from his speech, writing his name and even just walking to working on his memory loss and dialysis 3 times a week. So please don’t think that just because things have moved from negative to positive that he doesn’t need your help with a donation today. Even a single dollar will help him and his family and will go a long way to paying some of his medical bills, purchase medical equipment he’ll need in his home and future therapy.

The first picture of Jake awake!

As many of you know JAKE BOOTH IS AWAKE!!!! I actually had a chance to talk to him this morning, I was talking and he was listening, and according to our parents he knew who I was and started crying. Probably because I told him I stole his hat and I’m not giving it back until he asks me for it. But most likely because he’s been in a come since February 22nd. But maybe because of the hat. It’s a real life miracle.

Jake is in and out again between sleep and awake. His ability to focus seems to be for a short amount of time. He is on the trach collar and breathing on his own. I think when he realizes his situation he gets sad. We continue to re-enforce how well he is doing and that he is getting better. We believe the more positive we are with him, the better.

He’s got a loooooong road ahead of him and he and his family need lots of help. Please don’t stop praying. Please stop by and donate to his GoFundMe… https://www.gofundme.com/wakethejake.

Jake’s Tattoos Recreated For Your Own Tattooing Pleasure

Print

Some of you may know that I am a tattoo fanatic… I’ve got many. Some of you may also know that Jake Booth has several tattoos. Some of you may also know that I spent many years as an Illustrator for work. So what better way to remember Jake than through the sweet-sweet pain of a tattoo gun. There are 2 in particular that interested me, so I’ve redrawn them, fixing the diffusion of ink that happens as they age or with just bad tattooing.

Click the each picture to download a high resolution PDF of each of the 2 tattoos I redrew that can be sent by email to any tattoo artist in the world. If you get one of these please send me a picture so that I can post it here. I’ll be getting mine this weekend.
