Anonymous said: Your illustrations are so pretty and uplifting or big positive? fat-positive. I am a little on the heavy side myself, so they make me feel good. I like the shark hardcore feminine big lady. Very neat. Do you like aquatic life and aquatic types of fantasy creatures a lot?
Thanks for the compliment! I think all body types are beautiful, yet only one kind tends to get represented. I don’t want to be another artist that adds to the exclusion of non-white, non-thin people. There are so many different types of bodies out there - how could anyone be satisfied by drawing just one?!
Next to dinosaurs and spiders, I think ocean creatures are the most fascinating. That’s where all life originated yet we know less about the bottom of the ocean than the surface of the moon! There are some pretty bizarre creatures down there (hence my nudibranch love - those things look like aliens!). The ocean makes me feel like anything is possible, and I think that’s where the mermaid obsession comes from. The ocean is so mysterious…it just makes aquatic fantasy life seem somehow feasible? Like I know it’s not possible, but then again..is it?
Great question! And I hope your day is as lovely as this Spanish Dancer Nudibranch :D
I want to expand my shop, but I’m unsure what listings to add. Is there any specific product you’d all like to see? More hard femme mermaid stickers? Magnets? Air fresheners? Different brooch styles (besides bats)? Or maybe a listing for commissions? Like I draw you as a mermaid for 15 bucks or something?
Let a girl know!
I’m gonna go try a bunch of these until this rash is history.
Anyone have a good rash remedy (that’s not cortizine cream)? These things look like lacerations and are SO FVKING ITCHY I’m in agony. I’m having trouble finding any relief and I’m too paranoid that it’s a food allergy to eat anything so I’m STARVING.
You’re my favorite <3
