Musical Mermaid by micklyn

An illustration of a guitar playing, music loving, wild haired mermaid. Hand drawn, scanned, coloured in Photoshop CS5.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    How can a marvelous work like this not have any comments yet? Seriously? Beautiful work, as always. I love the pattern behind her and the patterns on her tail. Her hair is perfect and, well…everything is. Amazing master piece, Micklyn! Great idea! xxx ♥

  • Thank you, dear Tangerine-Tane!! I don’t really mind if nobody comments, I’m so happy with my little mermaid… I do these illustrations mostly for ME. : ) xxx ♥

    I would go to her concert, diving gear included in the ticket price? Will she cover “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay”? It’s a must…fave.

  • Thank you for your lovely comment, Randy!! yes, of course, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay – one of the best songs, ever!! : )
