Recently I painted a concentration of marine life in a light that makes them seem alien,eldritch,or like just funky.
I’ve always had an immense love and fascination for marine life but I never really knew why.Just the concept of life living and swimming in waters as of it were birds flying indefinitely was strange.And the fact that we’re were much more to it than just “fish” was so extraordinary
On my Instagram I provided “in-the-field descriptions” as if they were real.I gave absurd fictional logs on the way they swim or how absurd they are for hunting food.Sure I exaggerated: angler fish using sounds,squids having exoskeletons.But I wanted to present how bizarre marine life is even if you leveled it back with regular oceanic fauna.
Originally I made them for room decor so I gave them a punk collage look but I ran out of glue lol.Ok end of posts it’s starting to lag.

Every year I like to make a blog post about this year’s animation moments (mostly for me) this year wasn’t easy for anyone, lots of bad stuff happened, even to me, but this year still surprised me with animation moments that I won’t forget
Thank you for the series that ended this year.
For giving us so much representation, for giving us the first gay marriage on a children’s show, for giving us fantastic songs, for making us smile and cry,
for ending with a kiss we were wanting for
for ending on a bittersweet note on an adventure we soon won’t forget
For teaching us to move on
For us wanting to know what happens next
For giving us amazing shorts that makes us feel sadness
and make us feel good
For ending perhaps too soon
For shocking us in new ways
For giving us good things in this dark year
For making us think
For giving us new characters to love
And seeing older ones return
And thank you 2020
and for making us excited about
what 2021 will bring
