Please enjoy this painting, “Ripple,” I made based on a concept by my brother. He plans on painting this on a canvas in the future to sell, with the profits going to the Vaquita.
Here is what the t-shirt looks like (they simplified my drawings’ colors and details for easier printing):
I have been and will continue to be extremely busy for the next few months, due to the publishing of my book, the creation of the VCS, and helping coordinate National Save the Vaquita Day (July 6). I may not be able to post as many things during this time. But believe me, I am going to have a lot of stories to tell when it’s all over.
Halt thou mesh-made catcher
Of thee porpoise, fair and just!
With coal eyes, and
Slate flanks, and
A slight hint of rust.
In azul waters
They sulk about,
Avoiding thou mesh-made catchers.
And they, in the end,
Will ultimately gain pity.
