If you haven't heard about Tom Bancroft's mermay event then you have landed in the right page. Every year Tom Bancroft prompts other artists to post daily sketches of mermaid ideas based on a list, this lasts for the whole month of may, hence the name, mermay. 

This year Tom also surprised everyone with the announcement of his new project and his very own mermaid character, Lani. Be sure to check out Tom in Instagram account to not miss out great mermay posts as well as his school ocean adventure for Lani.

You can view my sweet goldfish baby mermaid here or jump to my tribute to Lani. My favorite sketches involved sleepy merbabies, they are just too cute! If you look close at the lines you'll notice I am using the one and only's Aaron Balise's sketch brush, absolutely wonderful.
