That's one large lady (grins)  A quick Google image-search turned 
up several bajillion results for fodder, so I'm not hurting for 
material ;)

I think you considerably overestimate my artistic abilities. :)

("and circling at her feet there should be sharks with frickin' 
laser-beams attached to their heads.  You know, I have one simple 
request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams 
attached to their heads! Now evidently my cycloptic colleague 
informs me that that can't be done. Ah, would you remind me what 
I pay you people for, honestly? Throw me a bone here! What do we 
have?".  minion:  "Sea Bass"

...sorry...went a little Austin Powers for a second there... :)

I'll see what I can doodle up.  I'm not sure how to depict 
deaf/hard-of-hearing iconography.  Kinda hard to make a cochlear 
implant as obvious at that scale.  The first thing that comes to 
mind is one of those old-fashioned hearing horns, but that's just 
shooting from the hip.  Better suggestions, anyone?
