I keep seeing people do Mermay stuff so I figured I would sneak one in at the end of May here.
I’ve been using an iPad to draw lately so it was a good excuse to draw something just for me using nothing but the iPad. It is strange! It is very different than what I’m used to doing but I can see it being really helpful to get my process moving a little faster.
Nothing will replace my giant kindergartener sized 9B pencil though.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day from this green moray eel in Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary!
Green moray eels are actually brownish, but they don green in celebration of holidays – or, rather, to protect themselves from parasites and disease. That is, these eels secrete a yellowish mucus that covers their skin, giving them a greenish tinge.
Did you know that electric eels aren’t even eels? They’re actually closer to carp and catfish, in classification. They can’t actually breath underwater, either. Isn’t that a shocking fact? I’ll leave, now.
