• Magical Flounder from @lexamann #Repost @lexamann  I have a few sketches leftover from #folktaleweek that I'm slowly working through including this take on the tale of the fisherman and his wife. Do you remember the story of the magic flounder that granted wishes to the fisherman who kept returning to the fish with increasingly bigger and greedier wishes until in the end everything was put back to where it started? It just goes to show you that harassing fish is never the answer. Anyway I've always found flatfish to be magical with their migrating eyes on one side of their body camo abilities and the sheer size that halibut can grow into.  Whats your favorite oceany or fishy folklore?    #folktale #fable #fairytale #fishtale #art #illustration #womenwhodraw #drawing #illustrationart #flounder #fish #artistsofinstagram #waves #seas #oceanlife #fishofinstagram #halibut #ocean #sea #illustrationartists #procreateartist #illo #illustrationart #illustration_daily  #illustragram #alexisamann
