Draw the Oceans Challenge

This month Greenpeace challenged artist and illustrations form all over the globe to join in with their campaign to draw the oceans. The project aims to highlight that the Arctic Sunrise is sailing through the Indian Ocean and documenting the threats our oceans face, and put pressure on governments to protect them.   

Draw the Oceans

The draw the oceans campaign was headlined by artists such as Oliver Jeffers, Quentin Blake, Jane Foster to name a few and you can view all submissions by searching the #drawtheoceans hashtag on social media.

So it seemed rude not to join in and show you some of my ocean artwork and whale imagery. It's given me thoughts of doing a large canvas painting of a whale too. So what this space.

  • Love the paintings – so bright and really cheerful.
    My partner, Susan, have travelled all over the western hemisphere looking for and at whales and your plan for a large canvas whale sounds fantastic. I look forward to hearing more about it.
