La Sirena Poster
Hand drawn with micron pens and colored in photoshop, September 2020
Inspired by traditional Sailor Jerry nautical mermaid art. However, the twist lies in this siren’s empowerment stemming from her own realization of her beauty. While the siren’s traditional mythological narrative dictates a power that roots from her ability to entrance male sailors- my mermaid recognizes her beauty through her own reflection, entirely eliminating the need for the male validation to fuel her vanity.
