Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen on paper. July 2016.
The Husband has been reading a lot of Slavic mythology lately (he has Ukrainian ancestry but a lot of the family history was lost after his grandfather was released from a prisoner of war camp after World War II and migrated to Australia, and so The Husband’s been tapping into his cultural heritage through studying traditional mythology, which I think is super awesome), and noticed a lot of mermaid themes. He asked if I could draw a mermaid riding a seahorse, and this is what I came up with. It was just a quick sketch but I was really happy with how it turned out. To clarify, though, this mermaid is not one that I have drawn based on Slavic myth!
I’ve got some products featuring this drawing over at my RedBubble store.
