I needed to make a post that wasn’t in the scope of my drawing competition!
Which probably means… it’s going to be a mermaid.
They are really what I’ve been making in my spare time… so like my mind is all nautical like all of the time.
And that’s just alright with me… it keeps my head out of space for like 30 minutes at a time.
So I present to you proudly, my Elliott and me self portrait:
it’s like my new favorite thing
Today’s drawing competition is going to be an exciting one :)
I have been full of really great ideas lately.
And all of them have to do with ice cream.
It may be that I’m hungry, or that it takes to long to really get cold in California… But all I can really think of is ice cream animals.
And all I can think about when I’m working is Mermaids…
So I combined the two, and I feel really good about it.
Meet ice cream mermaid.
She is strawberry, and sprinkly.
I imagine she is like a baker mermaid, and that she smells really good (and totally not like gross fishies)
She’s like the strawberry shortcake of the sea.
And her favorite band is the Mer-Cure which features Robert Smith of the Sea. (I really want to draw him as a mermaid now)
