What can I draw for you?
When members of the all-lady team, HAIRY MERMAIDS approached me to design their team t-shirt for the Dirty Dash mud race, I rolled up my sleeves, tore off my socks, and pulled my shirt up over my head. "I'M FULLY PREPARED TO DRAW YOU LADIES A T-SHIRT ILLUSTRATION FOR SUCCESS!" I bellowed.
My first attempt that was quickly rejected. Here's why said team HAIRY MERMAIDS: "We want her throwing a pig! And she's not burly enough! We want a burly two-fisted mermaid RR!"
Okay okay, limber and pencils blunt I charged berserker-style into V2...
Proud to introduce THE HAIRY MERMAID i've fallen in love with her too. She will be appearing in a comic-within-a-comic inside my OUR FRIEND THE STOVE strip.
Also, i've been invited along to watch Team HAIRY MERMAID in action. Watch this tread for photos of the event.

|I like the first one, with the pipe best|
The second one though. It looks like how a mermaid from Dogpatch would.

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
