OFFICIAL MERMAID PORTRAITURE — (OR THE POST THAT SHOULD HAVE GONE UP IN DECEMBER)

mermaid portraits, mermaid portraiture
You may have come across my very realistic portraits which are now "a thing" I do for my friends as Christmas gifts, or in the case of my past Dinosaur Portraiture, a gift for an awesome time spent in LA. Well, this past December I could've bought them (them being, my girls: friends met in junior high and high school who you don't talk to for months and it doesn't matter because you pick right up where you left off). Well, I could have bought them something useful, something awesome but I opted for mermaid portraits because well, everyone needs to know what they'd look like as a mermaid – of course.

I should have posted these back in December when it was more relevant, but I rediscovered them the other day and wanted to share. I could have gotten more detailed, more "realistic" in a cartoony-caricature way, but that date of the 25th was looming. I did hesitate to post these for a moment because of that reason, afraid to post them because they "could've been better", and they could have, but then I decided who cares, just share it. These are always fun to make and when you find yourself drawing someone and laughing to yourself, thats a good sign right?

Hope you enjoy and have an awesome, magical and beautiful week.

EXPERIMENTS WITH COLOR AND PAINTING

These are just a few abstract paintings I've been experimenting with lately; lots of playing with color. I love getting lost in these, creating them when I'm not designing new invitationsYou may recognize one of these paintings from a past free desktop wallpaper I shared on the blog. (A quick note: the awkward angle on the image above is due to me taking the photo with the paintings backwards - I noticed later - and so it's been rotated).

This image below is a few shots of one of the paintings in progress and the final outcome. Always cool to see where the paintings go.

The painting above is Canopy no.2. All of these were created using gouache and acrylic.

This painting above is Abstract Untitled No.1 (Yep, the perfect name when I can't think of a name.

This one is titled Canopy No.1. You can also find a version of this painting as a free desktop wallpaper which you can download here.

If interested, these three prints and other items are available in my Society6 shop here. The Society 6 shop now has shower curtains (love these), wall clocks and other awesome stuff.

Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful week.

OVERHEARD NO.7

A new set of a few random things I've overheard lately, both directly or in passing, from strangers and people I know that made me laugh or smile just a bit.

My friend Dennis (whose awesome art you can find here) had a gas station attendant make that comment about his eyes. It made me laugh when my friend Hildy told me this story, which I admit is the only quote I didn't directly overhear, but  "You have Puerto Rican eyes" sounds like the name of an 80's album, and that is hilarious.

Read more from the Overheard series here. I'm curious, have you overheard anything lately?
