Last summer, I was messing around with my GoPro camera and taking shots of my daughter jumping off of the diving board and into the pool. This illustration combines a pic I took of her with the selkie myth. I've had it bouncing around in my head for a couple of weeks and finally put it to paper last night.
As a side note on selkies, they can be found in two movies that I know of. One, The Secret of Roan Inish and two, Song of the Sea, an incredibly well animated film by the same people that did The Secret of Kells (also a great film).
