Inspired by the childhood toys my parents brought me earlier this month. Sea Wees were little mermaid bath toys. My across the street friend Stepahnie Sykes had them too, to when we had a sleep over or play date I'd bring mine. You see in the illustration that she's showing me how to brush their hair (the one I'm holding needs some help!). The green base color is from the green tile I remember her bathroom having circa late seventies/early eighties.
This was a doodle I did at work, just layering in character on top of character, something I liked to do on blackboards in study hall in high school. I scanned it in and digitally colored it in. Even though I didn't go into animation (for which I'm grateful knowing how hard it is), I still feel all the Disney movies inspired me.
