These aint yo' Mama's Mermaids...





Ive joined an online drawing group called Art Jumble, recently (see sidebar) and have been having a blast. Each week an assignment is given and whoever wants to upload drawings relevant to the weeks topic do so at will. This week's topic is "Mermaids" and for some reason I couldnt help but think fo various ways I could clown the little mermaid character AND make a statement about how mermaids are normally depicted in cartoons in general. One burning question I have is "how in the world do Mermaids go to the bathroom?" there seems to be no exit passage...
I hope viewing these images will encourage other artists to check out the site. Its a great way to get insp.iration, and build up a body of work.

Luv your work. I'm the guy from Singapore who was at Reno.

Thanks. I feel if ya can't have fun doing art why do it? The ideas for these came to me one afternoon while thinking about the little mermaid. What if Ariel got old? What if she had a cross dressing brother? What if she was fat from eating too much plankton? What if there were other mermaids
