A mermaid with a tattoo of a sailor.
I’m completely enamored of the Stillman & Birn sketchbooks - the paper can take a really unbelievable amount of abuse. I do not work for them (though I wouldn’t say no to a sponsorship - this is what we call a HINT Stillman & Birn people), but they are the sketchbook I would recommend. I use the Epsilon series paper in various sizes.

I may get tired of turning people into mermaids at some point, but it hasn’t happened yet. This was inspired by an instagram photo posted by Kat Mon Dieu of she and the great Dirty Martini performing at Night of a Thousand Stevies.

I was planning on writing a Roger Ebert post, but for various reasons, I refrained. I did, however, draw this illustration in preparation.
