Canned Tuna

Illustration Friday theme for July 25,2008? "Canned."
The first idea that came to mind...canned tuna, good ol' "Chicken of the Sea!" (as seen in this photo).

Which is now also in pouches (as seen in this photo). I knew I definately had to draw a mermaid.
But the clincher was when I received an e-mail about dolphins getting caught in tuna nets. Then I read on the "Chicken of the Sea" website that they are "dolphin safe since 1990." So, from "canned tuna" to a dolphin safe "chicken of the sea" mermaid comes the illo below.



Check out the site...http://www.chickenofthesea.com/...and join the mermaid club! I liked this site also... http://www.mermaidsonparade.com/...which I found in my mermaid research.

In addition your illustration being wonderful, I really appreciate you sharing your thought process in your entries.

is it chicken or is it tuna? that is the famous question of the decade. nice mermaid.

steve said...

That's good news for sure, for Chicken of the Sea eaters. Great job depicting this and let's hope more tuna companies do the same.

this is marvellous, and cute too.

Great idea. Nice color and framing on the illo. too. The mermaid looks melancholy; maybe she is sad about the dolphins killed prior to 1990.

You should send this to Chicken of the Sea, they would love it.
I like your website, it is friendly and fun.

Not only is it rich in Omega 3, it inspires art... tuna, it's what's for lunch!

Lovely, lovely mermaid, so magical. Nice job!

Loni Edwards said...

I love your illo. I especially love the dragonfly. The colors are really cool. I like her hair and how it matches the curls of the waves and her tail. Very nice.

Teri C said...

Very creative, imaginative and needed in the world today!

Bad Faery said...

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog. Your illo is really sweet. I love your mermaid's tail. Very flamboyant!

Jasmine said...

but unlike chickens, tuna are endangered! they are more like the bald eagles of the sea. dolphin friendly isn't enough, we should eat tofu instead. or kelp of the sea. would love to see that label instead.
