The Mermaid and the Moon

Mermaid-moon

I created it for my digital design class with Photoshop, combining this tattoo design and this picture of the moon. I was inspired by Ted Hughes’s poem “Song,” particularly the first stanza:

O lady, when the tipped cup of the moon blessed you
You became soft fire with a  cloud’s grace;
The difficult stars swam for eyes in your face;
You stood, and your shadow was my place:
You turned, your shadow turned to ice
O my lady
