One drawing of a whale turned out to become a one year project where I did a lot of research on the biggest sea mammal alive.It has become my mascot, my navigator.
Here are some of the illustration I made based on the information I gathered during the period of research
The whale is a master of navigation.
All done in pencil
baleens were used for corsets, combs, umbrellas,...
eating habits - catching their food by making a net of bubbles
Every whale has its own whale surfacing behavior.
Want to know which whale you spotted? Take a good look at the cloud of mist it produces from its blowhole, how it breaches, or just use my illustration to guide you.
evolution of the whalefrom a wolf-ish animal with tiny hoofs to the giant mammal it is today
This is my journey with the whale, originating from the research I did. Ever since, this giant became my 'mascot'.I'm in love with its form and shape, its mysteries, symbolism and their ocean.
