I started this sketch months ago and set it aside for a while, but now it’s finally finished!
I’ve always had a soft spot for The Little Mermaid. It was my absolute favorite Disney movie for a little while when I was a kid (before The Lion King existed).
I did a pageant once as a kid and there was a part where the hostess asked all the kids what they wanted to be when they grew up and then told the audience as she introduced us. All the other girls said sensible things like “doctor” or “teacher” or “astronaut.” I told the woman that I wanted to be a mermaid. She then, much to my dismay, announced to the audience that I wanted to be “a swimmer like the little mermaid.” I guess mermaid was not an acceptable career choice.
