Ok, now we are progressing on the idea. First image has our main hair stylist, behind her some towns folks in front we see what she sees, just a bunch of fish head people walking, this is my way to express how sometimes we artists focus on our thoughts and art and see the world differently from others. I made this image weeks ago and it later came back to play an interesting part on the development of this story … .. . 

Next some more fun fish haircuts, and boat fisher net motifs. The lower dude shows how I’m still struggling to find what I want. 1st, 2nd and finally the 3rd redo of the same dude is more funny and interesting. I think because it is also playing with face diagonals more than the others.

“One time this American man was visiting our village. When he saw our little fishers boat he asked if we could transport him. He wanted to go surfing offshore and was in need of transportation. Even though we could really use the money, my husband doubted to accept his offer because of the bad conditions of our boat. I told my husband he had to be transparent about the situation. The man was willing to go anyways so my husband took him. When they came back the American was so excited that once he got home he set up a Facebook page for us and told his entire group of friends about his experience. After that we kept getting more and more people who either wanted to go surfing or fishing with us. Our financial situation started to develop and through the years we managed to save up money. Nowadays we own three boats and all our kids went to school. One even graduated and is now a primary school teacher.”
