Red Tide: Representing menstruation symptoms through mermaids to show how society dismisses menstruation as fairy-tale like.
This one is my favourite one, midway through the pieces my professor suggested that every piece have the colour red in it.
Fun Fact: bright red my 2nd least favourite colour. I like burgundy a lot but general reds I’m not a fan of.
Needless to say I was not happy but pairing the red with my favourite blues really worked especially in this one.

Hey, you’d look real nice with this piece wrapped around you as a skirt or on your homework in a notebook to make you more productive… with this design now on RedBubble!
