I've drawn and or painted a lot of mermaids in my life. So tonight it was really surprising that I chose to draw a mermaid with my new mechanical pencils from Target. Twelve for a dollar, can't really go wrong there. And the eraser works good. The sketchbook also came from a dollar store.

When I was doing caricaturing, I loved to draw my subjects with mermaid bodies. My weakest area was sports. I could never quite remember how to draw a soccer ball or a basketball. I really should round up some kids and get back into caricaturing. I want to show you the mermaid here but she's topless and I don't want to offend anyone. We'll see. I don't really want to put a black rectangle over her torso either.

Drawing tutorials?

A while back I was thinking of making some drawing tutorials. And then I got busy and it slipped my mind. But someone just commented on one of my articles that I should do tutorials so people could learn to draw the things I'd done. I'm surprised no one has asked me before but I'm definitely considering it now. I was watching a cartooning show yesterday on TV and I couldn't help thinking, 'I could do that.' We'll see.
