Fashion Illustration 2: Mermaid Gown

After creating The Red Gown, I was inspired to create another fashion illustration. As the temperatures warmed up, I was inspired to create a beach-themed look.

Looking back at some of my prints, I realized that a mermaid-inspired look was perfect for this theme!

This is what evolved:

Do you have any mermaid or fashion-inspired art? Feel free to share in the comments below.

Happy Illustrating!


  1. Both of your mermaids are beautiful and the lino cut stamp is AWEsome!! :D
    Not art as such, but I did a tag one week last year, and wrote the poem, for the Tag Tuesday challenge I take part in. If you'd like to see it Abigail, it's here http://www.flickr.com/photos/65345361@N02/7686405772/in/set-72157629898358493
    Half way through the week already - I hope you have some nice plans for the weekend :0) Mo
