“All the water in the world today is the same water that first materialised on the Earth four and a half billion years ago. That’s all the water there is…..there won’t be anymore.”
Marion’s contribution is a recycling of a postcard featuring a work of Paul Klee, entitled ‘Demon above the Ships’. Coupled with the Cousteau quote the result is a multi-faceted and thought provoking response to our SEA CHANGE call out.
Thank you Marion!
Today’s post has brought something very special from writer, zoologist and sometime illustrator Nicola Davies.
The whale swims underneath the city,
Deep down among the roots of steel and concrete,
Where pipes and cables wave like kelp.
Its low voice is held inside the groan of traffic.
Where neon splashes on the tarmac you will see a ripple,
And you’ll feel, in the small, salt pools of every cell,
The echo of its passing
Thank you Nicola!
Today we received our first quadriptych! Four beautiful postcards successfully navigated their way from southern Spain to land on our doorstep. María is both a successful illustrator as well as a trained biologist involved with conservation project Nereide
María previously contributed to MIGRATIONS and we have been discussing future projects together- hopefully we’ll be able to collaborate with our inspirational friend from Tarifa soon!
Thank you Axel for your magnificent contribution to SEA CHANGE – you’ve even gone to the trouble of illustrating the stamp!
During these challenging times Axel has been busy donating his time to help create the imaginative and very informative ‘CORONAVIRUS- A book for children’ available to download for free.
We are delighted to have received a postcard from glass artist Maja Stanic. Maja’s skills with stained glass have translated beautifully to this linocut illustration.
Yuval Zommer, author, illustrator, environmentalist and friend of the ICPBS has created this wonderful postcard for SEA CHANGE . No project about the natural world could be without Yuval’s work- his latest creation of wonder is the The Big Book of Blooms -something beautiful for these challenging times.
Thank you Jane Ray for the first postcard to drop!
It is very special when something as beautiful, sensitive and thoughtful as a Jane Ray illustration arrives through the post. Perfect for the making the waves we want to make.
