Maid of La Mer!

I've been messing about with Illustrator and Vector drawings again lately and worked up a little mermaid image. The beginnings of this drawing came from a cool tattoo I saw on the arm of Burlesquer Dolly Berlin. I drew Dolly at a Dr. Sketchy's session last summer (goodness, how time flies). The hardest part about drawing in Illustrator, I find, is getting some life into the drawing. I'm so used to my ink lines and relying on light and dark that to draw in colour takes a different kind of thinking.

If I ever got a tattoo I'm pretty sure it would be of a mermaid.
