Mermaid of the Moment: The Illustrated Man and La Sirena by George Courage

Earlier this year my husband George designed a mugboard (the photo thingy with the faces cut out) for a musical theatre production of ICARUS, produced by Liars & Believers in residence at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA.

The story was a retelling of the ancient myth set in a Depression-era freak show carnival. (George also designed several banners that were used in the production, getting him a mention in the NY Times, which you can read about Here)

Since George loves mermaids he decided to go with a sailor and mermaid illustration.

Below are his concept drawings and progression throughout the process, from sketchy doodles and reference, to the finished mugboard in use.
