 I'm really happy and excited to share the game I have been working on for the past several months now...Mermaid World! The video above was put together by our talented Brandon Jones who still remembers After Effects! ;)  Seriously it's been a dream come true to design one of the magical creatures I love most. I was very fortunate to be given practically full freedom to create the look and style of the mermaids and I had so much fun doing it!

Below are just a few of designs and their final renders. The beautiful renders were done by the talented Barlow GilmoreEmery Miller, George, Rodgers, Katherine WaddellLain YeePeter Emmerich,  and Ryan Hungerford . Katherine also did all the mermaid animations for the game and they are just so wonderful. We are rolling out a ton of new features in the next few weeks so if you love mermaids and a mysterious story..definitely check it out! :)

Whoo-hoo this is my 100th blog post. Out of 4 years I prob should have more than that but yay!!! Aside from all this mermaid madness I have other cool news to share. I will be at  Disney's Wonderground Gallery this weekend as part of the Artisan Showcase they have there. I'll be at the gallery Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 and will have select prints with me and a bunch of new mini originals. If you are in the LA area and specifically Downtown Disney-come on by! :)

I am so obsessed with Mermaid World...I really think my husband is concerned about it! :) These are such beautiful designs and makes me miss my days as a doll designer. Nice work! Please make more so I can continue my addiction.

Wow, amazing pieces of art.
You are doing great and trust me, I mean that because I am the type of person who is not much interested in these things. I just came across your blog and *boom*. It forced me to have a look at these pieces.

I have been following your blog for a year and when I saw this game it reminded me of your style... I just saw this post that you did work on it!! I wish I would have known sooner since I saw your table at WonderCon! I love all the mermaid designs and am currently obsessed with this game. :p :D

It's so wonderful to hear feedback about the designs and the game. Thank you all so much. :)
CrowdStar is coming out with a new version of the game soon too with some mystery thrown in.
