This has been a personal project based on conversations with my children about deep sea creatures real and imagined.
The idea began a an imagination game of creating imaginary creatures. This one was of a Great Barrier Reef mermaid of bejeweled colors. I was so inspired by their imagination, I wanted to draw her. Then we began making up stories about her and from that was born the idea of a book.
Maybe one day I'll write the story; for now, this is what I think the cover would look like. It's been a wonderful opportunity to develop and improve my digital illustration skills.
