Project Mermaid


Project Mermaid was a bit of fun craziness on my part—my version of TV’s “Project Runway.” 🙂 I intended to release four new designs each week, allowing readers to vote for their favorite. At the end of twelve weeks, the winning designs would be featured on a calendar.

Time constraints put this “virtual reality show” on hiatus indefinitely—but, we’ll see. Perhaps when I get some free time, I’ll fire it up again. In the meantime, here are the results from the first two weeks:

WEEK ONE’s Challenge was: “Found Objects.” Caught Looking Fabulous was the winner!


WEEK TWO’s Challenge was: “Baubles and Beads.” “Shake That Booty” was the winner!

  9. Great idea!!! and I love “Caught Looking Fabulous”

  10. Astonishingly awesome art! Great website! Here’s a poem I wrote about mermaid-wishing that your art illustrates so beautifully:

    I think I would feel good
    if I could scuba in Aruba
    like a mermaid underwater
    like King Neptune’s only daughter
    with the warm, clear turquoise water
    my exclusive alma mater

    I could swim fast like an otter
    I would skim past like a yachter
    I’d be long, tanned and trim
    in fact a synonym with joy
    If I would just act on my whim
    and get out of here— Oh, boy!
    –Kelly Athena
