This piece was inspired Ariel from the little mermaid and one of my favorite fish the lionfish. I tried to imagine her adorned with all the little man-made trinkets she would collect from shipwrecks strewn across the ocean floor.
I did this while thinking of my late father. He loved camping and while sketching one day this just came out. It's supposed to symbolize his ascent from the darkness into the light in the afterlife. It's not a literal likeness of him but it was a therapeutic exercise in a childrens book style.
