This piece is the second part to the Children of the Sea series. The series itself pays tribute to the ocean life while implementing a "child-like" aesthetic through bubble blowing techniques. I developed the technique through teaching, as bubble art was a medium I experimented with for my elementary students. The Shunrai shell as a staple medium for the Kolohe Ocean Gems' handcrafted jewelry.
The piece itself took 40+ hours of inking and painting with watercolor and acrylics on watercolor paper.
