Pen and Ink drawing of Mr. Humpback Whale of the South Seas by Sandra Santa Lucia
A while back I was presented with a rather fun project…a cartoon character of a Humpback Whale, I choose to portray Mr. Humpback in a tiny little tour boat welcoming enthusiastic tourists who had a birds eye view from Mr. Humpback's wine glass. What fun! I thoroughly enjoyed the process of simplifying and creating a mammal in such a cute and exaggerated humanistic cartoon style… Mr. Humpback was born. Along with the actual drawing I did some research on the Humpback Whale gaining a little knowledge about this magnificent mammal. From July to November the Humpback Whales spend six months in the tropical waters of Vava'u, a tropical Island group in the Kingdom of Tonga, located in the South Pacific. It is one of the most scenic and unspoiled of the Pacific Island nations.
