Mermaids are cool anyway.  

This was drawn for a 'Mythical Menagerie' journal on Bookmooch. I included this drawing and the premise of Rumiko Takahashi's Mermaid Saga, that eating mermaid's flesh will gain you cursed immortality.

We have been slowly making our way through that series! We are somewhat hampered by the fact I find it too scary for my daughter to watch, which means we have to stay awake long enough after her to do it though. Love the drawing.

It is pretty scary for kids, but man, I love the idea behind it.

Sorta. Mermaid's flesh is a poison, so eating it kills most people. Of the few that survive, most are turned into icky fish-demons with bulging eyes, icky purple scales, and no memory of being human. They just kill and eat people, and can only be killed by having their heads cut off.
Only one in millions successfully obtains eternal youth.
