Who doesn't love mermaids?  I mean, apart from Ursula, I cannot think of anyone that does not love them and by love them I mean want to be them. I mean, want to dye their hair the same colour and sew their legs together and use permanent marker and bits of alfoil to draw scales on and sticky tape flippers to our feet and grow our hair long and learn to breath under water.  It’s essentially the entire plot to The Talented Mr Ripley, but if they were mermaids.  Hey, that’s a movie I would pay to see!

This illustration was done with my two favourite Instagram merbabe’s @sunfilledream and @lanbriget in mind.  I stalk their Instagram’s whenever I need some mermaid inspiration and they ALWAYS deliver.  

You can find this on my Society 6 also, wahh wahh wee wahhh

Counting down the days to summer when I get really get my mermaid on…

where is my margarita, and where is my wand for that matter??

It is 3.03pm on a Friday afternoon.  There is no margarita in my hand, or next to me, or on my desk or anywhere in my vicinity.

What is the problem here everyone?? Where is a margarita for me to drink and be merry with?

This is quite distressing.  I am not quite sure what to do with myself.

I have drawn about 5 pictures of margaritas in the notebook next to me, but so far none of them have magically come to life.  Is this because I'm not REALLY a wizard?  Have I been living a lie all this time?

There is a lot for me to contemplate it seems. 

But how are YOU doing?  Yes, it has been awhile.  I hope you are still a wizard and surrounded by margaritas on this winter Friday afternoon.

Well, hasn't this been pleasant.  Good day.
