Urban Legends

Design entry to the Golden Talents design contest

This illustration is strongly inspired by a Luxembourgish legend, Melusina. Melusina was a lady, who transformed once a month into a mermaid. In order to prevent her husmband from finding out, she hid in the 'casemates'-caves. But once her husband followed her and discovered her taking a bath, having her tail exposed. When she found out, that her secret wasn't a secret anymore, she jumped outside the caves into the Alzette river. She disappeard. Atlantis is a memorial of our urban legend.
