Going Back to the Sea....

...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...

Red and white stripes and raffia beach slippers

  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.

  1. I love beach pyjama's!! And your beach slippers are adorable! Can't wait to see more!! :)

  2. Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. See the link below for more info.


  3. Reading your article is such a privilege. It does inspire me, I hope that you can share more positive thoughts. Visit my site too. The link is posted below.

  4. An fascinating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you should write extra on this subject, it might not be a taboo topic but typically people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers casino bonus
