Mermaid vs Merjim

I drew this little sailor/mermaid combo and then realised that I had accidentally drawn Matt Baynton (of Horrible Histories, The Wrong Mans, Yonderland etc). 
So, naturally, I decided to change the mermaid's face to Jim Howick's; who is also of Horrible Histories and Yonderland fame. (I checked with him first on twitter. He was cool with it.)
Then there was a really bizarre moment where I was googling "Jim Howick in drag" to try and work out his best flirty mermaid face. I love my job.
Here's the result.

  1. Oh my goodness! This is fantastic! The second one is my favourite, but they're both excellent! PS, I have recently written a poem that you might like to illustrate - it's about submarines! I can send it to you if you like. Let me know :-) -x-
