MAKING SOME WAVES WITH MERMAY 2019

If you’re not sure what “MerMay” is, it is an online art challenge started by animator Tom Bancroft.

The objective is to have you draw or paint a different mermaid piece for every day of May. You can check out my 2018 post here for even more info! I did this Monthly Challenge last year and really enjoyed it so much…that I did it again!!!

During this year’s month-long tribute to the art drawn by real-life mermaids, I was only able to draw 26 of my 31 mermaids. I managed to paint them all in watercolor, however, I’d say that I failed this challenge because I didn’t complete the 31 mermaids this year. I still had a ton of fun doing this challenge—but where did I go wrong?

This challenge embraces the values of creativity, community and above all else …MERMAIDS!

Why Did I Do This Month-Long Challenge? My first attempt at this challenge was May 2018. You can read up more about it in my previous post “Monthly Art Challenge: Making a Splash With MerMay 2018“.I decided to give it another go this year as well since I...
