New from Emily Sophia: Pin Up EMporium

New from Emily Sophia: Pin Up EMporium

drunkenmermaid.com is happy to announce fan-favorite Emily Sophia has launched a new endeavor: “Pin Up EMporium” – a studio where ladies can be original, classic “Pin Up” style art! Emily Sophia provides the concepts, styling, make up and photography, then transforms the image using colored pencil and other techniques, so as to produce custom “Vargas-esque” images! Visit her on facebook, where you can see the dramatic before and after images. Here we have “By the Sea”:

April Highlights: Opera Company of Philadelphia, R.B. Wood and a new piece by Emily Sophia

drunkenmermaid.com would like to thank our contributors and viewers for a great first month back! April is shaping up to be an eventful month for us:

This week, look for our rolling feature on actor Chris Davis to continue – after which we have Opera Company of Philadelphia and novelist R.B. Wood, just to name a few! And the 500 dollar Battle of the Bands is now open – see the Contests page for deals.

Original 2004 webmaster (and designer of our tavern logo) Colin Develin of Wahnsinn will be taking over the look and feel of the site, so expect some big improvements.

In the meantime, we are pleased to share another mural by Emily Sophia – “Venetian Waterway.” It measures 5’X15′, is painted on a brick surface, and was commissioned by a restaurant in Raleigh. Emily Sophia was only given 1.5 days to complete it. We love the end result.

All the best and looking forward to a great April – The Eds.

We now begin a brief run of Emily Sophia’s photography, leading off with an image the East Coast hasn’t seen much of this year, but our friends in the UK and Europe are all too familiar with…this photo was taken in Chapel Hill, NC, in 2010.
