A Modern Mermaid Tale

We all know that relationships don’t always work out “happily ever after”. Evidently, this also holds true for mythical creatures, as you can see in this photo series by artist Anton Konashuk.

Beautiful, but a little bit heart breaking. You’d think giving up the sea for someone would be enough to keep them from passing out drunk while you cook dinner, even if the chain smoking got to be a bit much. Wait…is he passed out or did he die from second hand smoke? Is this a commentary about the dangers of smoking?  Actually, the biggest problem I have with her is that she left the poor cat. “Take the goldfish and leave the adorable kitty”, said no one ever. Then again, my priorities might be a bit off.
