Chola-Maid

Getting your nails done underwater is tricky. But totally worth it.

I love her booty!

And the way she checks out her nails and the way the water borders around her nicely!

Hope the baby's well!

Christine Vaughn said...

AUGH! I love it!!! That is fantastic! Perhaps if I were a mermaid, I'd like to be chola-maid.

Hoop earrings, thin eyebrows and long nails. You really hit this one out of the park. Chola-Maid - very fun!

Roberta said...

Funny one Meredith!

Brandi said...

Very nice. That is a great face! I love the cut out of the background. Great illustration!

I love this mermaid, she's so real, I mean, this is what I'd look like as a mermaid! You rock! :)

Meridth Gimbel said...

Really, thanks for the flattery :)

All be honest it's one of my pet peeves when media doesn't portray interesting quirks of people as beautiful. I love a bend in the nose, a high forehead, or a "ghetto booty." I think it's what makes us interesting.

(Okay I'm off my soapbox now.)

Meridth,
Thank you for posting on my blog...sorry I have fallen off the map for a very long time. I know Christy told you what happened, and I was pretty reclusive for a long time. I am doing somewhat better now.
At any rate, the answer to your question about the halloween stuff - I was having issues with the lady who authored it, so I called it off. She has a good property, and she's very honest, but I'm too far down the road to be delving into something that may become a self-published project, aka "free."
Anyway, the illustrations were fun enough that I'll just have to work on somebody else's halloween idea, or write one myself...
I love the things I'm seeing on your blog. You have a great style, and I love mermaids - yours is FANTASTIC!!!
I miss hanging out with you and Ed, I seriously love you two so much.
Also, the next time you're in town I need to get some photos of you...I am starting a new project, and I know you would be a great model for it.
