Sea From My Perspective

Xochitl Krumbiegel

 

The animals depicted on the pins initially captured me because I was creeped out by them yet somehow also intrigued by them. I decided to not only draw the sea creatures but to form them into pins using the "Badge-A-Minute" device to create the actual button. By understanding their role in the ocean and learning more about them and the beautiful colors they are composed of, I see new creatures. First I drew out the jellyfish, slugs and different fish using illustration pens with points that are 0.8, 0.5, 0.3, 0.1, and 0.05 (mm). Next, I colored them with Prismacolor Premier Art Markers and finished them by turning them into buttons. Now I can only "sea" the bright neon colors from these amazing underwater muses.
