Illustration Friday - "Packed"



Hi Everyone....

I took a break to do a quick illo for this week's prompt...

Nothing like fresh mermaids PACKED in salt water....

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs

Diana

A very cheerful and beautifully executed drawing! Your sardine tin inhabitants are a lot nicer than mine!

Tessa said...

What a wonderful take on the topic - this really makes me smile. Lovely illo - so bright and beautiful!

Lisa M Griffin said...

too funny... and they look so comfy in their sardine tin, must be because they just came back from the spa. That would explain their gorgeous hair and shiny scales.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

That's such a clever illustration!

Fannie said...

Clever, Diana. I'm going to think about mermaids now when I open up my next can of sardines.

Enjoy your weekend!

Great one Diana!

Honor Bowden said...

heehee! They're so cute. I was thinking about doing sardines. I love that you still get your omega 3 with these two. :-)

Ces said...

NO!!!! I love sardines (even though they make me sick and I have to eat them served with cups of hot tea) PLEASE do not pack these mermaids.

This is absolutely a very clever and cute take on the subject. I hope IF selects this as the best.

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Diana, they are so sweet just lying there. I really like the line work and color choice here. The line has so much character. Great illustration

Tomás Serrano said...

This is hilarious! I love it.

Edrian Thomidis said...

It's funny, the first thing that popped in my head for this week's theme was sardines. Your mermaids are so beautiful and colorful, they really don't look 'packed'. Lovely!

Tracy said...

HA! You made me giggle! :) They look much better than a pack of sardines would look in that container! What a cute idea...

Sylvia Jenstad said...

very cute... I agree a little creepy eating them... but a really cool idea

soulbrush said...

seen a few of packed sardines, no mermaids yet...cute.

ValGalArt said...

i love this Diana :)

Diane said...

This is so cute. I love the bright colors & how your work always makes me feel HAPPY!
Hugs to you! Diane

NANCY LEFKO said...

Bella Sinclair said...

Love these brilliant jewel-tones! These ladies are gorgeous. Who wouldn't want a tin of mermaids?

Random York said...

Perfect Diana! Your illustrations go well with food! Speaking of food, thank you for the birthday wishes and "virtual cupcakes"! I will have to keep your sentiment in mind and go to the bakery and pick our a crazy Halloween cupcake or two (or three). Thanks again! Great, cool work!- John
