Whaling in the Faroe Islands:
Pilot whales in captivity:
Pilot whales as predators of squid
Originally intended for the pilot whales to be hand-painted but I was too sure how I wanted the pilot whales to be painted (watercolour-style or?) so I decided to render it digitally. Scanned, cleaned and coloured my works.
Did not like the looks of the lines so I removed the lines and changed the colours to give a softer look.

Brainstormed ideas with the topic “FOOD” in my head.
Hm, was thinking about doing paradoxes of social problems related to food, such as anorexia, obesity, etc.
Thought of doing an animal-related project too.
Looked up some animal-related works on Bēhance. I’ve read once about the infamous Faroe Islands and how they purposely strand these whales/dolphins on their beaches by cornering them, then move on to slaughter and consume them.
Some of the animal artworks on Bēhance inspired me. So I decided to used Pilot Whales as my topic.
