Illustrations by Alexa Cassaro: Queer Sea Babes

Notes from the creator Alexa:

Mermaid Parade, Coney Island, and Pride Parade, Manhattan, celebrate queers everywhere. So I decided to combine both and create my own little queer mermaids, tritons, and sea babies! Because sea creatures can be queer too!

I will be tabling at Flame Con this year and this print among other queer mermaid things will be available. Stop by and say hi!

I am a non-binary ace Illustrator, printmaker, craftsman, and fabricator from the NY, NJ area. Much of my work is YA related consisting of very strong sassy female characters, sensitive males, and curious genderless characters existing in an emotional and dramatic world. The comics I write have LGBTA+ and Gender Identity subjects. I support all the angsty confused teens and hope they can relate to my work and not feel alone or misunderstood.

I am mostly influenced by shoujo manga, anime trash, bad girls, scientific illustration, mermaids, and glitter. Those who are a fan of these topics I hope you enjoy what I throw into my work.
