The #MerMay Hashtag Has Us Swimming In Gorgeous Mythical Art

In 2016, Disney Animation veteran, creator of “Mushu”, author and character designer, Tom Bancroft created #MerMay, a month-long celebration of creativity, community, and most importantly, mermaids!

The challenge has been going strong for two – soon to be three! – years now. Each year, Bancroft has introduced something new to delight his followers, from a mermaid-themed adult colouring book to an original story about a mermaid named Lani who dreams of flying.

This year, the best submissions to the hashtag stand a chance to be featured on the official MerMay website and/or Bancroft’s personal Instagram. Some draw original mermaid designs, but there are also many awesome fan interpretations of fictional characters as mermaids or mermen! Here are some of our favourites:
