Poor mermaid. I just added her to my Etsy store.
Should I make a print of this?

This is one of my favorite recent subway drawings. It’s part of a series of thumbnails for a larger project. An imaginary 1915. A seaside. Winged snakes and lizards.

  Wesley Morse, Pencil, pen and ink and gouache on stationery, 7.25 x 10.75in. 

  • How It Seemed To Talk With You Today — Wednesday Night, 1922-23(?)

 • To Late (sic) — Thursday Night, 1922-23(?) 

Although the majority of the drawings in the collection are stand-alone gags, there are three sets of two-panel sequential pages. This is a splendid example, with Morse cleverly utilizing the tossed life preserver as a unifying visual and story element. Also, There is a poignant undertone here, a sense of longing and loss, present through much of his illustrated correspondence with Avonne.
