A hard copy of a print or the book itself?

If you're interested in a print, I am making a few of this mermaid specifically and can mail you one for $10 + shipping if you're interested. Just contact me! As for the book, it won't be finished until next year or the year after, depending on how quickly I work and how everything falls together. You can follow me on Tumblr or the official website for updates!

Thanks for your interest! :meow:

I really would love the book. I'm really interested in other types of mermaids. This one is just so CUTE!
I based my mermaid tail off of a painting of a Bear Lake Cutthroat Trout, so as you can imagine, I like really fishy mermaids, especially freshies.

I call mine dummies. They have about three thoughts. And I can't have pretty holey things there as they would get stuck in them and I hate pushing them backwards. >_<

Lol, they aren't the smartest cookies sometimes. :p I had one get stuck in my driftwood when I was trying to clean the tank and jumped right out onto the floor. I was terrified he broke his back, but he was just stunned for a while.

I used to have a little cave I made out of rocks as a little hangout for them in the back, but now they have a little crevice in the corner of the tank between the class and the plants and driftwood.

Those lil guys are pretty sturdy.
My plants are so big that I can usually only see them when they're racing against the drift.
