Once again, I came across an unusal, yet eye opening piece of information when I began coloring in my sketch.  As I was searching for mermaid-esque tails for scale reference, the Montreal Mermaid School Aquamermaid  popped up.  If your child is into mermaids but has a fear of swimming, this idea could be a game changer.  My daughter will flip...urm... will WANT to flip with these ladies when she hears about it.  Never a dull moment here on THE BLOB BLOG.  And for Secret Agent MerMan!

This week I drew a lobster for the very first time...along with an accordinist named...Hildy!  I spotted that name in the local newspaper years ago, and have loved it ever since.  It sticks!  One of the characters in my Hungry Halloween Blobs collection also bears the name...and it probably won't stop there.  Onto BLOBS!  Enjoy the designs below.

Once I picked which character I was going to flesh out, I did some research on lobster anatomy.  My pencil sketch was pretty off so after making corrections, I modified the shape slightly to up the lobster believability and arrived at...

                                                                                                            Ludwig, the Livid Lobster

BLOBS #53 RESULTS

It is RESULTS DAY and BLOBS have birthed Santa's Race Car, Black Belt Betty and a potential member of the Hungry Halloween Blobs cast, to name a few!  

What I enjoy most about BLOBS is I am constantly learning and experimenting.  I would have never drawn a shrimp for the fun of it last week.  Nor would I have drawn a catfish a few weeks before that.  The same for witches, frogs or seals.   I would have stayed in my me zone and continued to draw beings and creatures I know best (women, kids and...ladybugs). 

I also pick up nifty information along the way.  One of the shapes below inspired a bee like character...which turned into a giant bee puppet-powered-by-people parade float...which made me wonder if an insect parade exists somewhere in the world.   With some quick research I discovered Bee City Usa.  It was a week long celebration in Asheville, North Carolina that occurred this past June.  They are the first inaugurated city to promote pollination and raise awareness in the community about the power of pollinators.  And although I did not find a bee parade in the events that went on that week...maybe it could happen in the future?  Enjoy the designs below!
