Virgin America is a fascinating airline, combining Micro-transactions with cutting edge amenities. The in-air “Hearty Meal” is available to order from your seat back, and consists of a salami log, wedge of cheese, crackers, pretzels and Welches fruit snacks. $8.00 American.
I sit in the San Fransisco Terminal waiting for my connecting flight to San Diego. Time for another blast from the past to make this blog seem flush. I was honored in 2010 to draw the poster and t-shirts for the Coney Island Mermaid Day Parade. The Scurvy Pirates had many WONDERFUL gigs playing the sideshow, and we still think we have family there. I was given few parameters, but wanted the piece to be special.
This is a color mock up of one of several pitched concepts. I always wanted to get the Cyclone in there, though that never happened. I think the final came out splendid.
Somewhere I have a copy of the poster I have to frame, autographed by the Mermaid King and Queen themselves. Yes, that’s right, I have Lou Reed’s autograph on a piece of my art.
