Hi! My name is Claire Williamson and I am the cartoonist/illustrator behind Sea Legs.
Sea Legs is a surf cartoon about a fishtail surfboard named Fin, enjoying life with his mates. Expect lots of waves, pizza, and shenanigans.
“Just chillin’ with my fronds” – Fin
Fin and his friends were born the day I saw Thomas Campbell’s movie, ‘The Seedling’. In one scene, the camera follows the shadow of a surfer walking with his board under his arm and, to me, the shadow looked like a surfboard with legs walking by itself. My brain found that amusing and I immediately started drawing surfboards with legs. Fin became a fish pretty quickly as that is my favorite type of board.
