Monica, the sweet teacher at Sörängen, drew this a time ago together with her husband Göran. They wrote the children's book "Här kommer Bu-Ran och Seo-Ran från Korea" together among other things.
The mermaids are eager to hug the diver and can't wait for their turn

We (our class at Sörängen) went to see Björn Ranelid, a poetic controversial author of many books, with the talent of speaking. He has recieved many awards. Afterwards he would write autographs for those who wanted one, so I asked for a mermaid instead. He thought it was a neat idea, and there was no problem with being in the future eventual book/blog.. because he, as he said, is a man of his word and that you have to stand up for what's yours. I absolutely love his handwriting and how it continues into the mermaid. You can find his website here.

Jonas Embring, a movie maker! You can find him here. Here taught us alot about movies, manuscript and dramaturgy. And showed us some of his movies as well (A documentary called "Mio" and several short ones: "En spritsaga") Here's his mermaid, diving into the ocean like a silhouette.
Klipp från Jonas filmer:
One day this kind of person sat right beside me, a girl who drew manga in a sketchbook. And I got so nervous! She was listening to music as well, and I was afraid to ask her. When it was only half an hour left before my stop... I thought: now or never! So I asked her! She looked a bit puzzled at first, but was then flattered. She happily drew a mermaid for me, an adorable manga mermaid! I drew an eye for her in return, and you can find her deviantart here. We're both from Scania, and both studying in Småland (Eksjö - Nässjö) what a coincidence! We later got to meet again! We both had animation in school, so she watched my movie and I watched hers. We're still in touch today! Even though we were complete strangers to begin with. (Awesome)

Elisabet Norin drew this cute and funny mermaid, alike a horse or a hippo. Elisabet visited us at Sörängen together with the students that took the distance writing class that she was supervising. She's a writer and a reviewer.
Susanna Alakoski visited the school to talk about herself as a writer, and afterwards she drew this pretty, pretty mermaid. She is the author of "Svinalängorna" and "Fejkad orgasm".

We had George Strachal as our teacher for a while at Sörängen, he's a journalist and came up with some interesting writing tasks.. such as interviewing someone or writing a text based upon only ONE of our senses. He is the author of books like "Glass: parfaiter och sorbeter" and "Bröd: från bagels till tunnbröd"
"I akvarelljuset, illustrationssalen. Lukten av zinkvit färg och flyktiga sammanhang. Du står lutad över ett stort bord och river ut sidor ur din bok och sprider ut dem. Sjöjungfrur tar över bordsskivan, rummet, världen.
Du räcker mig pennan och ber mig. En med urgröpta ögonhålor, skadeskjuten framtidstro och en kropp som bränner ner haven.
Minnet kan vara rekonstruerat.
Övervattensvärldar. Vi står på skoltaket med deras tvådimensionella kroppar i händerna och luftvirvlarna tar omvägar kring oss. det är höst i våra ansikten och din mun är ett jack i papperet. mina ögon klipper intryck till fragment med fransade kanter.
Minnet kan vara konstruerat.
När kolet i din ögonvrå druckits upp av grafitljuset kastar vi kropparna
åt vinden fattar våra pennor
särar på våra sammanbundna ben och börjar gå.
Genom öken och under oceaner"
