Mermaid Hostel by Jen Vaughn
One thing I figured I could do on this blog is get the word out about some of the comics I get exposed to while at CCS. From the amazing works of the visiting artists to the tremendous output of my classmates, there's almost too much to go through.
So first, I direct you to my school's homepage: The Center for Cartoon Studies
The main page has a lot of information about all the guests that come to the school as well as faculty and student works. It's a great resource.
Secondly, I'll direct you to a great webcomic by artist Jen Vaughn who is currently a second year here at the school and a totally awesome lady at that: Mermaid Hostel
It's definitely one of the most unique takes on mermaids I've ever read and her colorful wash art style is really striking. She's also currently running a fundraiser right now so if you like what you see, feel free to send a little money her way.
