Laura Saterbak - Mermaids

The swimsuit is so cool! Is it mixed media? I love how you can always sense a big story behind your drawing, Laura.

Hey Marie
Okay this body is cut and pasted from the current barbie catalog....I had the idea to develop a "skeleton" mermaid and in pencil on tracing paper the upper torso came out fantastic but when I began the transfer process to blk paper it never materialized. Strange because I had envisioned a cage-like torso originally. So......when I saw this body image in the catalog I knew it was perfect. To my amazement the cut -out fit perfectly within the lines I had drawn the night before.....karma I'm sure. She was late and remains unfinished but perfect in my mind! Laura
