This month, PHANTOM HAND is doing a show based on Mythology. I wanted to do a lion / mermaid hybrid. Imagine seeing this beast swimming toward you in the water? The design is based largely on the Straight Ahead lion, with some hand drawing on the fly for the rest. I sprayed the whole thing gold, then made a mask out of tape in the shape of the chain, then peeled it off when I was done. Gives it a cool effect, I also did some shading on the fish tail. "Break Away" - Spray paint on a 16" x 20" canvas.
