fishes…

little fishies

Another random doodle… I was trying something a bit different technically and although that aspect was not a great success, I think the drawing is still cute in the end.

I was thinking about doing something themed for Canada Day or even the 4th of July – Bonne Fête to our neighbours! but in the end tropical fish lol

Someone sent me this link a couple of days ago (in time for Canada Day) and if you are in the mood for an amusing pro-Canada tune, check it out!

UPDATE: Another fun and also touching poem from Tom in the comments! (c) Tom Radcliffe 2010

Although not all that glister’s gold
sometimes a diver, brave and bold,
who plunges after pirate treasure
finds a gem that’s without measure:
little fishes, living jewels,
scales of gold that isn’t fool’s
adorning innocents that roam
amongst some old Phoenician bones
that lie beneath the sleeping sands
where corals grow and leafy strands
of seaweed wave; anemones
add their voices to the sea’s
great silent susurration, slow
and gentle, down below
where little fishes dart and glide
living life on stranger tides.
