Just a mermer

2004 will be all about writing and illustrating a children’s book. Hooray! After saying that I am going to do that for the last four years (and a lot longer before that in a “when I grow up” kind of way), I am now really going to do it. An idea popped into my mind last week and after giving it some more thought I have become completely inspired. Yesterday I started a little bit of an illustration when I really should have been working. Sometimes this is when I get my best work done — as if guilty pleasure fosters creativity.

As you can guess by clicking on the above picture, the story will be about a mermaid… a reworking of an old classic. Of course, I am not 100% settled on this idea, but at least the ideas have started. There is much fun to be had.
