Sea Songs

Communication with whales can be a tricky skill to hone. Turtle spent years under the tutelage of an old bearded man learning the sounds and songs of the sea. When the day came that Turtle finally got to talk to a whale, he belted out a song that would have made the old man proud. Not that the whale appreciated it much; apparently Moby Dick references aren't so funny in the marine world.

Frankly, Turtle was a little bit awestruck when he saw this amazing illustration by Lucy Farfort - visit her beautiful website here. It's available with other prints, stationery and accessories from her Folksy shop Lucy's Happy Place

Plus keep up with Lucy's design process and new products on her blog: Lucy's Latest News. Turtle loves a fellow Miyazaki fan and her blog is a really interesting read!

Beautiful Sea Things Tee from Bonbi Forest, available on Misi and the Bonbi Forest Website - definately worth a look.

Such an amazing painted print from Painted Prints on Folksy. Visit the website here.
