Variations on a Theme - Mermaids

Sorry for the nudity in these drawings, but I find it hard to draw mermaids with covered breasts. The majority of this first drawing was done at one of my favorite spots, Atlantis, the Lost Bar (located at Frankford & Haggert in Kensington). They have this huge aquarium behind the bar. The layout is very similar to the Lost Bar layout. The original was given to Reni, the owner of the joint, and it hangs on the wall next to the bar. It was done in pen, ink, colored ink and marker with some colored pencil highlights.This next piece was a design for a silkcreen print I made for an art show last spring. Roger Petersen and I had the first ever art show at Atlantis, the Lost Bar. The original was purchased by the owner of the bar, and will hopefully be turned into a t-shirt some day.
This was an envelope design I did recently for a gal named Joannie. I really like the theme of the deep sea diver and a mermaid, so I was happy to have an excuse to revisit it. Also done in pen, ink, and marker.
