Behind the Scenes with Stewart Stephenson: The Making of "Jessica Albacore"

Sep 14, 2015

"The concept behind the mermaid siren, Jessica Albacore, is that she has consumed the souls of many a unfortunate sailors that were lured in by her siren song, as well as her beauty and mystique. In Greek mythology, the mermaid siren were dangerous, beautiful creatures that lured in ships with their enchanting music. The ships would wreck on the rocky coast of an island called Anthemoessa in the sea between Sicily and Italy. Her beauty has been said to reflect the wondrous treasures and power of the sea itself. I enjoyed creating Jessica Albacore for fantastic clients in South Africa, now that is one well-travelled mermaid!" - Stewart Stephenson
