How Deep Is the Ocean? by ShadesOfEarth How Deep Is the Ocean? by ShadesOfEarth
My submission for the Calgary Expo's 2013 Artbook. The topic this year was "Weird Tales" and my mind went with an underwater Gone With The Wind-esque Art Nouveau scene. That's... how I roll?

The text is part of the chorus of an old Irving Berlin song which I found rather apropos.

I haven't heard back from them about it, and there's only a month to go until the convention, so I guess this piece didn't make the cut, but I still like it! Maybe I'll get some prints done of it :D

[EDIT: Apparently it DID make it in the artbook! They only tell you AFTER they've had them printed, I guess? Anyhow, spiffy!]

Great job. I am a fan of Art Nouveau and Steam-punk I see you use them both with majesty and grace. I will be following your work. Thanks for displaying it.
