Humpback Whale

This print of the charismatic Humpbacked Whale was one of the first prints I made during the 2020 lockdown. I was inspired by the capacity of Whales to roam the vast sea alone without feeling lonesome and their incredible ability to communicate with other members of their pod hundreds of miles away through song.

I have given this print the name ‘Gargantuan Heart’. Though they are solitary beasts they are big hearted and will often behave altruistically to protect their young, their relatives and even the young of other species of whale.

See in more detail how it was made by watching the video of my printing process.
