This is a drawing I did for a friend I promised doing a picture ages and ages ago.
She wanted to have an ordinary picture of a mermaid, which I did.

Really ordinary

I drew this picture when I was desperated again and sat alone on my rattan sofa at the kitchen. The blue colour and the pose of the mermaid shows the lonliness I'm currently in. I miss someone very special. It's hard to get split.
But I know we will see each other again soon and the mermaid can swim through the wide ocean instead of staying at one place.

This is another mono-coloured picture. I love doing it, it's already a fetish of myself and I don't want to get rid of this. More pictures of this style are yet to come.

- Prismacolor on Bristol board
- 2-3 hours

Have fun!
Your Alector

Cutis Cataractas are creature of my own. I didn't find a design I want to use permanently. So, more art is yet to come. ;)
