Manchester Art Jam: MerMay





Our Manchester studio took up the theme of 'MerMay' for their May Art Jam!

For anyone unfamiliar with the #MerMay challenge, it takes place over the month of May, and artists from all over the world draw a mermaid each day. 

Our Manchester studio took inspiration from the challenge and came up with some beautiful work, including lots of animated gifs, which you can take a look through below:
