Mermaid Artist Tammy Derwick, Part 1

12 Dec

Please admire the mermaid portrait that artist Tammy Derwick just did of yours truly:

Isn’t it lovely? She said she was sending it to me and imagine my surprise when a huge gorgeous box appeared on my doorstep like a glittering asteroid from outer space.

Here are a couple more of Tammy’s mermaids:

Tammy was also the official artist for this year’s Coney Island Mermaid Parade,

and has just contributed some of her beauteous colored-pencil mermaid art to Magick4Terri, the auction fundraiser for Terri Windling, which you should obviously go bid on. (I too have contributed books and other wonders to the auction, and you can bid on a beautiful Tori Amos mermaid poster by Lee Moyer.)

I will be posting an interview with Tammy here soon, but in the meantime you should bid on her art and/or consider getting yourself mer-maid over in colored pencil. It’s like The Picture of Dorian Gray… but with your true mermaid self in the portrait and not some hideous monster!
