It all started with...

Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid. After saving a prince from drowning, a mermaid princess embraces a life of extreme self-sacrifice to win his love and gain an immortal soul.  

Watch illustrator Ashly Lovett bring this dark story to life with chalk pastels. An illustrated book coming to Kickstarter in 2019. Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects that are brought to life only with the direct support of others.  

See step by step progress for this project by joining Ashly Lovett’s Patreon. See sneak peeks by following her on social media or reading her blog for even more details and updates. 

Updates:  Concept work will be created in the month of Feb. I'll start official illustrations for the book early March. For more immediate updates, follow my Patreon and social media.
