Showing myself up

Illustration for Hans Christian Andersen's the Little Mermaid. Above, the image I painted in 2010, aged 23. Below, the image I painted in 2004, aged 17. Take that, former self!


  1. Wow, this is superb! You captured so much mood and emotion, I've been staring at this in awe. The subtlety and color palette remind me of Howard Pyle. I love how the dark shapes blend together.

    I'll keep an eye on your future work!

  2. I love the use of the blues! It really defines the water as a space she feels comfortable in--in contrast with the dark world of humans above. Well done!
