What Lies Beneath?

November’s Art of Swimming illustration in Outdoor Swimmer magazine is What Lies Beneath by Gilly McArthur. Watch out for mermen and weedy willies if you are swimming this month!

“It may not be a merman tickling your feet with weed dusters… don’t have nightmares, happy swims folks!” says Gilly.

What Lies Beneath has proven so popular that Gilly is organising prints of the illustration, with 50% going to Surfers Against Sewage. The prints cost £20 and £3 postage in the UK. Contact Gilly at gilly_mcarthur@yahoo.co.uk . The perfect gift for swimmers without a nervous disposition!

If you are an artist and want your swimming illustrations to feature in the magazine email us at editor@outdoorswimmer.com
