So I created an illustration of a mermaid last year to such universal acclaim that I vowed never to depict mermaids again. Not because it was’t enjoyable, but because I could, with horrific clarity, see myself overnight becoming mermaid-lady and painting nothing but gratuitously fantastical siren scenes for the rest of my career, and it being a fast track to becoming even more cynical than I already am. Never the less, when friend and fellow Vancouver artist Laiya Fownes approached me with a story she’d written about mermaids, it was so sweet and sad and beautiful I couldn’t say no:P Should Laiya put it up anywhere online to be read I will definitely be posting the link!
