Chubby Inuit mermaids with sleek seal tails
Sleek Japanese mermaids with orange and white koi bodies
Dark, scaly mermaids with enormous white eyes so that they can hunt at the bottom of the sea
Small mermaids with spiky, poisonous lionfish bodies
Mermaids with sharp teeth and shark tails that hunt sailors for fun
Mermaids that aren’t just skinny blonde pretty girls with fish tails
Are these okay?

Scorpion mommy needs a lot of attention to take care of her babies because their exoskeletons are still soft and wobbly, and sometimes it’s confusing to manage all those limbs at once.
Please full view, it’s detailed.
The Faerie Queene - 2013 - Photoshop
…Unlike some fairy folk, she is not young and lithe, a wisp of a spirit passing through the ether… but, on the contrary, she is shrewd, powerful, and kind, possessing a grace and elegance that never fades… and she has far more interesting stories to tell, if you care to listen.
I’ve been working on this painting for the past couple of weeks. I thought it might be time to share it with the world. I hope you like!
This is brilliant!
!!! Coolest art I’ve seen today.
*silently shrieking at all this perfection*

Afro-Futirms: Envisioning the year 2070 and Beyond, curated by Kheven LaGrone, uses art to create a future for us to aspire to. It comes from an African American perspective. Runaway slave and heroine Harriet Tubman once said, “I freed a thousand slaves, I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” More than 100 years later, writer James Baldwin praised Black revolutionaries for daring to break down barriers. He wrote in 1970 a letter to activist Angela Davis: ” The enormous revolution in black consciousness which has occurred in your generation, my dear sister, means the beginning or the end of America. Some of us, white and Black, know how great a price has been paid to bring into existence a new consciousness, a new people, an unprecedented nation.”
What will be the black consciousness in the year 2070, one hundred years after James Baldwin’s letter?
