Normal Mermaids - Ongoing Series

Normal Mermaids Series

Personal project

Project started in May - during Mermay 2018. It’s an annual challenge for illustrators and creators to portray a mermaid each day for a month to keep the creative juices flowing. When my feed got flooded with mermaids in cute or sexy poses, it got me thinking. Do mermaids look good all the time, just float around being all flawless? Do they need to sleep or eat? That’s how Normal Mermaids started. It’s an ongoing series I get back to whenever I have the time, so stay tuned for updates on my Instagram!

Simple black and white palette with intricate, detailed lines and occasional solid black shapes keep the series cohesive.
