Happy Mermay 2018 folks. Heck happy May holidays to everyone. Happy May the 4th. Happy Cinco De Mayo. Happy Piccolo Day (Google it). Happy Memorial Day. Happy Mothers’ Day. Happy May! Happy summer break to all you students and teachers out there as well. They days keep getting warmer and longer and Spring is always nice.
Of course, I’m not even sure how Mermay came to exist. But here I am, drawing mermaids because they’re mythological creatures and they’re actually pretty cool. My third favorite musical as a kid was Little Mermaid. Lets be real here, Lion King was number one and Aladdin number two. Shout out to my folks who, with patience I cannot fathom, drove us a thousand miles to Disneyland with nothing more than the Lion King cassette on infinite repeat.
Also, here’s my Mermay entry from 2018 (above) and 2017 (below) and it’s a bit of fan art for a book called Rescue Sirens. I really liked the poses on these. Stay tuned for the colored version of 2018’s mermay art
