100 Mermaids *limited edition of 50 books*

from 50.00

I started my 100 Mermaids Project in 2016 and with this hardcover book it is finally coming to its conclusion. On 240 pages you can find all of my 100 mermaid drawings and research and accompanying texts by Dr. Cecilia Lillefisk (who is most definitely a real mermaid scientist). While it might seen like an encyclopedia, this book is not quite that. Dr. Lillefisk is an eccentric and cannot always hold herself back from retelling fairytales, delving into childhood memories and recounting drug fueled revelations instead of sticking to her own high scientific standards.

Do I actually have to describe my art? Chances are you’ve already seen some or most of it (Not all—there are new illustrations in the book! Lots of small spot illus and 10 larger ones. Also, there are some sketchbook pages and a mini tutorial.). Chances are they are the reason you’re here, reading this description and wondering if the book is worth your money.
Well, since this is a very limited edition of 50 copies (plus an artist proof or two) you can at least be reasonably sure you’ll be able to re-sell if you don’t like it. The books are all signed and numbered. Also who knows, I might get really famous or die an early tragic death. So think of it as an investment. Invest in mermaids today!

As I already mentioned, all copies are signed and numbered. I’ll be drawing into five of them (also into copies for Patreon supporters. Yes, they get preferred treatment.), because drawing nice sketches actually takes longer than one thinks. And we are talking about nice sketches here, not a five second doodle. There’s a lot of space on the first page that would really benefit from some pencil scratchings, just saying. Books WITH a sketch are going to be an extra 25 EUR.
