Under the Sea

SocMo was at his favorite dairy bar quaffing chocolate milk when someone slipped something into his drink. When he awoke, he found he had been shanghaied! After traveling 20,000 leagues UNDER THE SEA, SocMo looked out the window and saw that his problems had just begun...

When I first saw Disney's version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, I thought the Nautilus was awesome. I still think it is one cool ship design. I started out just trying to draw the Nautilus. Then I thought I could have SocMo looking out of the window. Later I remembered the great fight scene with the giant squid... and that was added to the picture. Then it was time to make up some plausible story to explain it all.

Wonder if Socmo will see David Blaine while he's down there. Another winner.

Nice use of colors to bring your eye to Socmo and then to the tentacle.

These days you can't be too careful, poor socmo! Lots of fun to look at and love the feeling of being under and deep in the sea. Great stuff!

Yep, that giant squid was great... even without computer graphics..
