Synchronized Swimming Nessie

Originally an illustration for a zine about cryptids doing ordinary things. I’m not sure anything happened with the zine but this was a really fun piece to contemplate. What WOULD the loch ness monster do for fun? What hobbies would she have? As you can see, I found an answer.

The making of this piece was a fun challenge for me because the zine was completely black and white (no grey). I’m really fond of that original version but I really like the way turning black and white to color forced me to think about space and shapes in a way I rarely do. I also really love this vintage advertisement color palette 🙂
