FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
31 May 2013
Black Mermaid Productions™ (BMP) is proud and exceptionally happy to announce the launch of its online shop – the Elf~Fin Emporium, featuring several lines of Elf~Fin™ brand gifts and collectibles.
The Elf~Fin™ range of images is based on BMP’s latest comic book series Elf~Fin: Hyfus & Tilaweed. BMP is an Australian creative team and publisher made up of Jozef Szekeres (artist) and Julie Ditrich (writer) that specialises in fantasy and mermaid-related comics and graphic novels.
The shop currently features four central images: three comic book covers and what is becoming the definitive Hyfus and Tilaweed character signature image—the “Yin-Yang” design.
Designed by BMP artist, Jozef Szekeres, the images are lush, colourful and also tap into the growing mermaid trend.
There are 60 products in the basic range. These include women’s and men’s clothing, kitchen utilities, home decor, as well as stationery items, greeting cards and framed prints. New designs will be released periodically in line with each issue release from the comic book series.
“This is the ONLY official trading post to purchase Elf~Fin collectibles,” says artist Jozef Szekeres, “Outside of hoping mermaid lovers will get pleasure and excitement out of wearing the designs or using them in some functional way, all sales help us push towards our comic book publication goals quicker which is our core business goal. We’re greatly appreciative to our current readers for all their support and we hope more and more people will discover our artwork through this product range because we adore the characters just as I adored painting them.”
The Elf~Fin Emporium is run through CafePress. The official shop website is: www.elf-finemporium.com
