ripple

Here's my entry for Illustration Friday this week and it is also an entry for illustrator Kelly Light's Ripple Sketches blog. Have you heard about it yet? Kelly started the blog in response to the oil spill crisis in the Gulf Coast.

Ripple Sketches is a site where you can buy pieces of art by making a $10 donation to either the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies or the International Bird Rescue Research Center. It's really taking off, as of this post, she's raised over $1,500! I hope you will consider contributing and getting a small piece of art in the process.
Check it out! My two pieces, Whale Before and Whale After can be found right here. (they sold! thanks, Mohita! yay for Kelly!)

Nina - what a great take on this difficult subject. You've brought light and hope and the resulting shock on the whale's face afterwards. Great palette and textures, too.
Well done and kudos for your efforts for the cause!
