Perhaps you might remember a post about Andy Ivanov and his illustrations showing the life of a mermaid that lives in a lake in 2019. Well, now the same artist has created the second part of the previous story that grabbed the attention of thousands of internet users. This is about a dramatic love relationship between a young man and a mermaid.
The second part continues with the end of the part one which we read earlier. Where will the artist end the love story of both of them this time? We thought of including the first part of the story, so that you’ll be able to know what happened at the end if you missed it.
The artist shared memories about the first time he started making these fantastic illustrations: “For the first time, I decided to participate in the annual challenge #mermay. I thought it would be interesting to tie pictures into a little story, instead of doing a different mermaid every day. I didn’t expect such a big resonance.”
“Please, live… I’ll bring you a Petal of Life”
“Do you see this beast?”
“Good job, boy! We got her!”
“What have I done?… She will not survive in captivity… I must somehow help her…”
“I’ll bring you home…”
“- I’m so, so sorry… Please be free again. – Hey boy! Do not do what you want to do, or I’ll shoot you!”
“Petal of Life… I kept it in my hand, from the beginning”
“You will live, you will live…”
“Wake up… The sun rose”
“I’m alive, but how is this possible? — Come with me, I will show you something…”
“It’s him again! We can hide in a secret place that I wanted to show you…”
“He won’t find us. We’re safe here”
“Lily is my life. I gave you part of me, the petal, and you…”
“Here you are! Gotcha!?”
“What is it here? It’s my precious — If he picks the flower, I’ll die…”
“DO NOT touch the…”
“Oh no, no… It’s all because of me…”
“I’m so so sorry… my love…”
He also shared about the time he spent to create all these illustrations: “One part of 12 frames took me a month and a half. Overall, it could take about a month, but after each illustration, I left a few days to tease the audience.”
Andy Ivanov said that his style of illustrations was inspired by Pixar, DreamWorks and Disney. However, the message behind this artwork of him is: “Love and respect nature. Do not try to own it.”
And also the artist stated that part 2 is the last one of the series. In Addition to that, he also said that he would share some more illustrations based on the life of the couple in the near future. Follow him on Instagram if you’re more interested in them.
