Have Ye Tippled Drink More Fine


After last night’s beautiful, colorful sleeve post, we took a (very scientific!) vote and decided, hey, how about another one? We’ve featured Terry Ribera’s work before, and it is almost singularly gorgeous, and this under-the-sea piece is really no exception. An underground tree, a giant crab and a little boy riding a mermaid who’s looking into a pearl/crystal ball? Looks like I picked the wrong day to stop huffing paint.

  1. wow! Think and you shall receive! I was just thinking about getting a mermaid sleeve and how I would want it to look. And BOOM. Modblog. *thinks about adorable indie boys…* ….Well it was worth a try.

  2. yeah, thinking about adorable indie boys didn’t work for me either. bummer! this beautiful sleeve is a welcome compromise, though….

  3. you forgot about the praying mantis! just another amazing aspect, great sleeve!!
