Elvis meets a Mermaid

A moment in time for you July 30 1961, Elvis Presley takes time out from filming his latest movie, Follow that Dream to visit Florida's famous roadside attraction, Weeki Wachee Springs. Hundreds of fans flocked around him as he made his way to see the park's number one attraction for himself the world famous Weeki Wachee mermaids as seen in my latest painting, Elvis meets a Mermaid. It will be 40 years to this August since the world lost the king prompting me to paint this image combining America's greatest icon with another great American institution, the roadside attraction. Now also available as an art print courtesy of UK Comics Creative prints will be available on the Hellbound Media table at this weekend's Wales Comic Con, so come along and get yours and say “hello”!

    1. (Picture, not photo. As I typed that, I was wondering whether any photos of Elvis' encounter still exist.)
