This design had been on my mind for quite a few years. Originally my thought was to do a big one that would wrap around our bathroom shower if I ever remodeled but that’s more than likely not going to happen for a long time. I have been incorporating the “scuba globe” character in paintings and prints throughout the years. Ever since I went scuba diving this character popped into my head. I felt like diving was the closest I would ever get to the feeling it must be like in outer space. Often the the paintings would mesh underwater sea life and outer space with stars and planets. At the same time the character is my way of representing how the earth is getting suffocated and that it need an aqua lung of its own. Hence a message in a bottle.
