In Irish folklore, mermaids (called “merrows”) collect the souls of those drowned at sea. I’m not sure if that’s a child-appropriate story, but this cutesy picture was lots of fun to draw!
shiny, pretty mermaids, hanging out.
I drew this ages ago but just found it in my dropbox- Miira the mermaid from my new comic Eth’s Skin. She’s knitting… who knows what, maybe some fin warmers? Mermaids are complicated.
I’m actually to the point where I’m drawing pages of Eth’s Skin. I’m so excited, I love this story- I cannot wait to show it off.
Some character responses for a side project i’m working on btwn commissions and work. More news later- but previews for now!
Story teller I think, sets up universes.
The Mermaid Manual: Koi
One of the mermaids from the domestic species section for my upcoming book, The Mermaid Manual.

Haven’t drawn a monster lady in a while. Been wanting to draw a Naga/mermaid character for a long time.
What if mermaids live really long - and the longer they live, the bigger they grow?
(I guess the bigger they grow, the harder it is for them to stick their torso and even their head out of the water. That’s why no one ever sees the big ones. And definitely never the huge ones.)
A bit late to the party, but here’s my contribution to Julie Dillon’s Catalog of Merfolk. I didn’t have nearly as much time to finish this as I wanted, but I have to be up in 5 hours so this will have to do!
