Underwater swimmer Hannah Fraser has been fascinated with mermaids since she was three years old. Hannah, 36, an Australian who now lives in LA, made her first mermaid tail at the age of nine, after seeing the film Splash with Daryl Hannah. Now she works as a model, actress and performer, swimming with whales, dolphins, stingrays and even sharks.
This is one of my favourite illustration pieces that I came across in the theme of water. I especially love the soft elements that combine to create a very dramatic and interesting image. I feel that the level of water filling the drawing up cuts this image up slightly so that it is not too plain. I also am very fond of the composition that has been used in this design as it is all very much tied in together and nothing seems to be out of place, for example, the whale seems to merge in well.
