Artist’s Medium

All 31 original drawings were created traditionally with: a blue Col-Erase Pencil, Pilot G-TEC-C4 black pen, and Pantone TRIA Markers. The drawings were later scanned and digitally perfected.

Kindle Feature

If you double-click, or double tap the date found underneath each mermaid/merman, the information window will pop up.

Kindle vs. Artist's Edition
The only difference between the two is that the Artist’s Edition contains a link which will allow you to download the high-resolution images of the artwork.
