...And once again I am longing to return to the stormy seas. I want to spend my Summer with a broken - hearted mermaid, a bohemian miss in wide legged beach pants, and a handsome yet moody, intense fisherman/sailor.
I want my forthcoming beach adventurers to be slightly on the more darker side than my previous trio (Call of the Sea 2013) I want them a little wilder perhaps. I want rougher seas, longings, desolate and isolated lighthouses and forlorn, melancholy mermaids.
When creating my characters I usually collect together lots of visuals which I keep in folders in my computer. I make lots of drawings in my sketch books which include the roughest of sketches as well as more detailed illustrations, ideas, quotes, notes, scenarios and colour combinations...

Here is a selection of just a few photos collected as inspiration for our top billing beach pyjama clad miss. Her name is still undecided, but I'm rather in favour of Persephone as I like the idea of her handsome fisherman friend calling her Percy.
