Amabie, The Healing Spirit to Fight Against Pandemic 

The illustration of Amabie I did at the beginning of the pandemic was featured in many media. According to Japanese folklore, in the 1800s, a mythical mermaid-like creature called Amabie appeared off the coast, told people, “If an epidemic occurs, draw a picture of me and show it to everyone." Feel free to download and color in my Amabie drawing!
