Shadowness - gingerkelly I am a freelance Graphic Artist, Illustrator and Fashion & Jewelry Designer from the Mid North Coast of NSW, Australia. My imagination is constant... en Neverland <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />First finished commission for 2014... 'Neverland' Many thanks to the wonderful clients who were so patient with me while I procrastinated over every detail! Photo sources are a mixture of my own plus those provided by the family who commissioned this piece.

I'd always wanted to re-work this and 'fix' all the little things that had been bugging me. Finally had a chance this week to dig up some of those half finished projects and complete them.

Model photo supplied by client & all the rest is painted. Many, many hours of work... but I had alot of fun with this one. I loved mixing her hair with the seaweed and hiding all the little sea creatures among a coral and shell bodice I designed for her. Sometimes I feel like a fashion designer for mermaids. What an awesome job that would be!
