Month: May 2017

A Sarawakian artist is behind these dreamy mermaid artworks

Artwork by Ellie Yong When legendary animator Tom Bancroft issued a challenge last year to artists to draw mermaids everyday for the month of May, little did he realise that the challenge would become an annual global affair. Dubbed #MerMay, the challenge is now in its second year and there is a possibility it might be the next big thing after #Inktober.

SHORT STORY | A Touch of Perfection by Elly Van Dalen

Image credit: Pinterest I need to fly. I need — no — I want to be in the spacecraft and feel myself hover above Earth and let myself be free. As a child, I pondered over books way past midnight, with a torchlight underneath the bedsheets, studying the planets and trying to discover unchartered stars. And yet, despite my high test scores in school, the high powers still deemed me unqualified and an invalid. Invalid, imperfection; born out of love, they said, unlike my younger sister, Cassandra.
