Artists from all over the world are creating mermaids and tagging them every day in the month of May, and it's SO fun. Here are some of our favorite illustrations, and take a look at #MerMay2017 and Bancroft's Instagram for more!

Okay, we're totally obsessed with this Audrey Hepburn-inspired mermaid by @raiansilva|ilustra. Not only was she an actress, model, dancer, and humanitarian, but now she can be a stunning sea creature, too!

Because apparently @raiansilva|ilustra respects that even mermaids needs to get clean, too. Salt water just obviously doesn't quite do the trick!
