What would a mermaid’s daily life and culture look like? I decided to explore some possibilities in these quick little concept sketches.

Each of these is so amazing! I love the lighting and color palette for each, and how you adapted underwater items to create something both familiar and foreign at the same time. What are the blue shell-like objects the mermaids are holding in the middle left picture? They almost look like water bottles of some sort?

This is a really good piece, I enjoyed thinking about each of these activities.

I have to wonder, what is the thread for the loom and where does one find such strait pieces of wood in the ocean? Maybe pressed kelp is the answer. ;-)

Lovely! I really enjoyed the Loom and the night-time reading scenes!

This is so creative.  The food preparation and chess game are the best.
