Mermaid

Hi there!


We are a small group of creative people that plan on producing a webcomic, namely @stiftchen, @kiaz1st, @charamaffle, @tinnegan, @galeanthropus, @objective-lost, @featherstorm77, @yesgay-briel and @pandanator8664.

The comic is about a science nerd who travels to live down by the sea with her father and brother, where she hopes to spot the elusive mermaids that have been reported to live there.

Themes: Ocean, Mermaids, Pollution, fighting bad guys, great food, Tumblr humour™, dorks and ships.

This comic will have lots of LGBTQ+ characters. We try our best to be inclusive to everyone, but if you feel we’ve portrayed a minority inaccurately, please tell us.

Here’s some concept art to prepare you for what’s coming:

In thirty minutes there will be an introduction stream on twitch, we are grateful for anyone who reblogs this or visits the stream!

During the winter months we get a lot of Doves, Pigeons, Rats and other less glamorous wildlife brought into our wildlife hospital. During a talk today, Simon was asked why bother saving pigeons, there are so many of them?

The answer to that is simple, we are simply just one animal within a very complex food chain, if one of the links breaks, then we, the apex predator at the top of the food chain will be the ones to suffer most. Every fly, bee, maggot, rat, pigeon (the list goes on) is vital for maintaining the balance of nature.

Almost all of the animals admitted into Wildlife Aid are sick, injured or orphaned due to human interference in one way or another, so all our work goes towards putting right the wrongs mankind around us are doing to our wildlife. So perhaps there are too many pigeons, or Doves like this one we admitted today in the photo, but if human’s have caused an animal to suffer, we at Wildlife Aid are determined to end that suffering and give the animal a second chance at life.

No matter how unglamorous or unpopular an animal is, it will always serve a purpose in this very fragile food chain below us.

In that food chain…..EVERY LIFE COUNTS.
