Lionfish

After spending last week unwinding from the whirlwind trip that was Comic Con, I spent the weekend working on a new piece for an upcoming Girls Drawing Girls gallery show at Meltdown in LA! Its been a while since I have 1. drawn mermaids and 2. made paper sculptures, so I decided to combine them here. Here is a bit of process:

The initial sketch in my sketchbook.

Early construction.

A few mermaid close-ups

Final (minus glass)

The
show opens on August 15th and runs through the 30th. If you are in LA and get a chance, you should stop by! There will be plenty of goodies there from some very talented ladies.

I also just added my Girls of Summer print to the Etsy store, so if you couldn't make it to San Diego you can snag one there:) I have a few weeks of relative down-time before my annual trip home, so hopefully that means I will be posting regularly for a while. Have a great week everybody!

Stunning! That's a rockin' sketch that you started with and the paper sculpture is just amazing. Great job! I live in Burbank so I'll definitely make it out to the show.

Wow, that is just gorgeous - from the drawing to how the paper sculpture came out, beautiful.

I only discovered your work recently and have been a huge fan ever since - your work is a great inspiration.

Cheers,

Brittney, let's do an art trade with this piece...and I'll draw you a crappy stick figure on back of the coffee-stained costco receipt that I fished out of my purse!
Wait, I already owe you a drawing...I'm working on it, it's just that it's constantly evolving and I can't finish it.
