Mila has dealt with her fair share of strange tourists while working the smoothie shack, but Delphine is by-far the weirdest. She’s fascinated by everything she sees from stray cats to shave ice, has no clue how anything works, and makes an unusual habit of disappearing on the beach every night. It’s almost like she’s part fish…
But the more time they spend together, the more enchanted Mila becomes with her mysterious
new friend. And when she learns that Delphine has to leave, Mila realizes she’d give anything to join her.
A Fish out of Water is a semester-long illustration project created by Brittany Borgese. It follows the story of a mermaid, a smoothie stand worker, and a magical whale who lives at the bottom of the sea.
