A new paper illustration! I brought in the book "Confetti" by Brittany Lee (http://britsketch.blogspot.com/) to work a week ago and one of my coworkers loved the mermaids in it. I've been wanting to make something for this friend for awhile, and I thought I'd come up with a fun new mermaid for her. I love all things arctic, so this was an easy leap for me to make.
I've been very busy with some rather stressful things the last few months, and as a result my creativity dried up for a bit. Just a few sketches here and there. But this idea got stuck in my head and I really loved it! Within a week, I had it drawn out, cut up and glued down. The actual construction process on this one was my fastest yet--less than a day!
My creative mood is seeping back into my daily life, so I'm looking forward to starting the next project. After I've un-super glued my fingers, that is.
