Reminiscent of a Paul Clay artwork with floating figures, this work is both whimsical and playful. The delicate handling of the details shows dedication and the result is a beautifully executed and very subtle work. The sense of lightness in the piece is both intriguing and ironic given the percentage of black ink but also the subject matter, being a whale shark, an animal of great size and weight yet this piece sings of innocence.
