Mermaid stories aren’t always happy.

I know that when we think of mermaids, the first thing that comes to mind is the story of Ariel and how she fell in love with a human. Her tale also had a nice conclusion because they got married and fell in love. However, in truth, the original story on which Ariel is based was much darker than the Disney movie. Ariel transformed into foam at the conclusion of the original tale. I realise a lot of people are already aware of this, but I wasn’t until recently.

And even while I adore mermaid tales, there aren’t many mermaid-related movies available nowadays. Certainly not ones that are any good. Therefore, it is always pleasing to watch artists bring their stories to life through distinctive and lovely artwork. Lily May steps in at this point. This is the tale of a mermaid named she. She does fall in love with a human, as you might imagine, but the story has more turns than you may anticipate.

The art style is what drew me in but the story is what kept me from stopping.

We owe Andy Ivanov, a resident of Ukraine, praise for this lovely tale. He posted the first chapter of this mermaid tale quite some time ago, and he didn’t write the second chapter until many people began to demand it. This undiscovered gem really gained a lot of attention and earned Andy more than 370k followers, which is an accomplishment in and of itself. He also has a lot more illustrations in the works, which you can see straight on his Instagram account. However, this isn’t the only thing he draws.

But the story doesn’t end there as there is a second part as well.
