The artist behind those drawings has created a sequel to his previous heartwarming tale, a dramatic yet sweet love storey between a mermaid and a human, which captured the internet’s love and attention.

After the thrilling cliffhanger it left us with the last time, the beautiful tale continues. Where will this time’s love storey of this unlikely couple lead us? We wanted to include part one of the storey so that you can catch up if you missed it the first time.

“For the first time, I wanted to participate in the annual challenge #mermay,” the author told Bored Panda about how he began making these illustrations. Instead of doing a different mermaid every day, I thought it would be fun to weave pictures into a tale. I wasn’t expecting such a strong reaction.”

The artist told us how long it takes him to produce this storey: “It took me a month and a half to complete one part of 12 frames.” It might take a month in all, but I left a few days for each illustration to tease the audience.”

Andy Ivanov told us that Disney, Pixar, and DreamWorks have influenced his style. “Love and admire nature” is the key message behind his art. Don’t try to take it over.”
