This piece is my take on Lani and Trigger from "The Mermaid Who Wanted to Fly," a cute little children's book that Tom Bancroft has been posting on instagram for MerMay. I actually posted this on Instagram yesterday but I've already changed a few things and added flowers for the ~aesthetic~ so I figured I'd share the updated version here first!
Actually this is the first "real" thing I've had time to draw for myself in a while because I've been busy with a freelance gig that I actually just finished up today! WOOO. Now it's time for me to catch up on all my Patreon duties and finally tackle my mountain of zine submissions before all their deadlines :')
Hmm anything else? Oh! My birthday was a few days ago on the 17th. Unfortunately I was feeling sick for most of the day so I didn't get a whole lot done but a family friend brought me birthday pie and our Patreon family here grew by a few people so that's amazing! *makes heart eyes at you all until you're uncomfortable * (it's my job here sorry I don't make the rules.)
We're starting to get reeeeally close to hitting our first goal for the page. I promised I'd make a Discord server for us when we hit it but I've also been toying with the idea of putting that off for the future and doing something else for this first goal. Thoughts? Anything in particular you'd rather see/have?
Anyways, I hope you're all doing well and thank you always for being here with me. I'm always thrilled to share my work with you and you are truly the reason I'm able to do so. *HUGS FOR EVERYONE*
