Sea Creature Coincidence. 

Long story but I was google image searching for a mermaid throne and although that was tough to find, many other amazing artworks showed up in the search. Mermaids led to sea creatures which lead to sea creatures that are taking down ships. I’m so blown away by the talent of so many artists. It’s also amazing how some of the images really made me feel scared!! Ok, so the coincidence part is that next day I came across a story that is a hoax about a giant octopus who sunk a Staten Island ferry. An artist made up this story to tell his nephew and he decided to turn it into a larger art project by creating a monument, a website and mockumentary. Because it seems so “official” people are actually wondering if this could be real!
