So Many Fish In the Sea

Well, this particular project was great, due to the fact that it combined most of the loves of my life, namely, mermaids, Coney Island and creative freedom. I have a friend who’s dusting off her party planning chops for the event of the Summer. As she sees it it’s up to me to come up with advertising. It’s a huge dating day, Brooklyn-style with a lot of young, single cuties. My only directions were, “Make our event look like the best thing you could ever hope to do with a Saturday!” Oh and I had to include the info too. I started by doing a google search for Coney Island (something I admit to doing all too often) I found this:

I REALLY liked this sign. It got me sketching. I came up with the lettering which started really detailed and had to be watered down and simplified. The neon thing is still slightly present, but it doesn’t over power that lovely lady on the bottom. Of course, lately whenever I start sketching I end up with a pretty girl’s face. There’s only so much you can do when you’ve got a lovely girlie staring up at you from the pages of your sketchbook. . . . MERMAID. . .mermaid. . . MERMAID!!! The “fish in the sea” thing grew from there. Dating, Coney Island, fish in the sea!?! It’s official I’m a genius. Now our mission has a slogan.

Oh to be a full-time mermaid artist, (by that I mean a mermaid who draws for a living). I guess I’m pretty much a full-time robot artist. I’m living a different kind of dream. . . a ten year old boy’s dream. Not that I’m complaining. . . . I love my robot job. Besides I’m young, we’ll work up to the mermaid gig.

Dragon swimming in a bathtub. We adopted this dishy-fishy in Mexico during the #happilyeveralvarez wedding week of dreams. There are few worldly possessions that bring me as much joy. 🌈🌈#mood #nofilter End of the rainbow.
