This cute cartoon whale smiles while swimming happily in the ocean. Instead of water, it splashes colorful swirls in blue, orange and yellow color. I’ve first drawn the bright swirls as a part of another design which I applied for a job with. In it the colorful swirls were coming out of a champagne glass. I made a number of music cover designs with that employer and I was very happy with our cooperative work. Then I decided to stop working on other projects, just to focus on my personal illustrations. Anyway…
Looking at my old designs I imagined these splashes coming out of a cute whale’s blowhole. I sketched the whale on my phone all in purple, with shading because I love purple and I love to draw shading. Then vectorized the animal, made it blue and combined both images. If I look hard enough now I can find the original sketch, too. Maybe I will add it to this post later.
Recently I found whales don’t actually spray water from their blowholes but anyway, popular movies have made us all believe this. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?
You can see the whale in all my online stores. It has two variations . One has a light neutral background and the other – dark blue. The dark blue background seems to be much more popular than the light one, though I personally prefer the light one.
