MATS bootcamp nautical wall art

tammie bennett's tatooed whale

i took lilla rogers' make art that sells bootcamp, and while i didn't participate as fully as i had planned, i had fun with this particular assignment.  

we were to create a piece of wall art using a nautical theme.  i have been loving whales for a little while now and i knew i either wanted to have whale or mermaid imagery in my piece.  

i first created the piece below using acrylic on cork for a little added texture. then i created the piece above in illustrator after scanning in my sketches.

tammie bennett's northern whale

i think it's pretty funny how both pieces have the same basic idea of a whale diving deeper, but they are quite different at the same time. 

these were a lot of fun to create.  i've added them to my shop because i had a couple requests to do so after posting them on instagram or facebook.
