New Mermaid comic in 2018

Surfacing-Depth-Perceptions-1When is 2018 going to get boring for mermaid related content? There is apparently a mermaid comic, for the mature reader, called Surface: Depth Perceptions. The comic is done by writer B. Alex Thompson and artist Nenad Cviticanin. It seems like this comic is about mermaids in modern day society, as well as the connections some historical societies have with each other… possibly due to mermaids?

Whatever… this comic looks… interesting. You will find a better run down and some more images at Graphic Policy.

Mermaid Security is my dream job!

mermaid securityI’m still in DC at the airport, but I was not going to let MerMonday be the first day without new content on the blog! I got this shirt last Monday, actually, from a friend for Christmas. Oh, how my friends know me!

If you want this shirt, you might get lucky looking around here fort it.

So what does this new line of profession do, exactly? Basic backstage bouncer at one of their concerts? Or, are we using Mermaid in the agendered way, and he is just a regular on land bouncer who happens to have a tail?

Who knows. I’m just glad to finally have a profession on par with Mac from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

DC mermaids

Four months ago, reddit user artyartface shared two beautiful pictures of DC characters turned mermaids… and I love them so much. That being said… is Harley’s head piece part of her body, or is it like… latex? The face markings are beautiful.

The second one is of Wonder Woman, and this one is important to me because she has not been a mermaid since she was Wonder Girl… which is weird seeing as Batman has been though.

Wonder woman mermaidJust stunning. Anyways, I hope everyone is having a wonderful Mer-Monday!

One of the commissioned photos from Cluedog for a recent Mer-Monday was recently colored by Kimbawest Let’s take a look at this surprise, almost Halloween, treat.

It looks good! For some reason though, I never realized how terrible fish mermaid’s color scheme would be! Even if he had a red fin where flounder’s blue fin would be, it’s bad. Then again, I never expected the stripes that Cluedog gave him… anyways, both incarnations of this pic are really interesting takes!

I hope everyone is having an amazing Mer-Monday!

Evelyn The Mermaid

Evelyn here is a mermaid that is my last commission from artist ClueDog. I don’t have a lot to say about this one, which is surprising as it is based off of another piece that ClueDog did that can be seen to the right.

I assume since there are two pictures, one as a human and one as a mermaid, that it could be argued that there should be a story behind it, maybe something similar to The Little Mermaid? *shrugs*

Anyways, what I think I’m trying to get at, is that with my latest commissions, I’m wishing everyone a Happy Mer-Monday!

Double the Texas sized Mer-Funday!

Happy Mer-Monday everyone. I recently consumed two different beers from indie beers from Texas that use… let’s say… a nautical theme. The first one, from Galveston Bay Beer Company, is actually from Dickinson, TX which according to Google maps is only 29 minutes away from Galveston.

20171001_221416The beer, a Blue Berry Blonde, was… an interesting one. The story starts before what I know. A friend of a friend procured this beer before Hurricane Harvey, only for things to go terrible during the storm. My friend helped him go through his shattered life, only to discover this siren singing her song through the wreckage of his shattered belongings.
So, how was this beer? Did it rock me like said Hurricane, or did it ruin me like… well… a Hurricane?

I think there was something wrong with it? Let’s start at the smell. There was definitely a light blueberry scent so that was fine. I split the beer with my friend in some brand new plastic cups from a package that was never opened. The beer tasted all right, but according to him, it had a ‘funky taste.’ I did not get that at first, but yeah.. a little bit? I finished his beer, and then discovered that there was a weird brown… whatever, that sort of looked like peanut butter at the bottom of his cup. What?! Weird. He brews, so I asked him what it was, and he had no idea.

I want to try this beer fresh, possibly in a bottle and not a can, but seriously… wtf was that brown stuff?!

GoliadThe second beer that I had was from Goliad Brewing Company, and it comes from the Texas town of the same name. The beer is called Redfish India Pale Ale. I’m not much of a beer drinker, so I had to pace myself on this one. My roommates seemed to find it a mediocre but completely drinkable beer. Nothing that they would seek out, but they would definitely drink it if offered to them.

I found it a bit too rich, and a bit dark, and my roommate did say that it was ‘a little bit dark,’ so what the hell do I know? I was able to drink it. Long story short… this beer tastes like what I think of when I imagine Goliad, Tx. So… yay???

The real thing to talk about, at this point, is the mascots. The Blonde is plain, and I just… eh? She sports some under boob, and maybe she is not proud of this, as her eyes are closed and her mouth is covered so we have no idea if she is frowning or not. She does not excite me into buying this beer, and I honestly feel sorry for her.

Goliad’s mascot is a red head, so points there. Her tail design though looks like a mundane fish, certainly nothing exotic. There is a light house behind her, but where is there a light house in Goliad? Notice I go there, and do not ask why Goliad has a mermaid. Clearly, she is a fresh water mermaid from the near by San Antonio River. We see more chest area, but that just makes me think that the mermaids of Goliad aren’t as respectful as those from Galveston… err.. Dickenson. I mean, come on… children will be drinking this beer!
