Ride the Whale by Eenuh Ride the Whale by Eenuh
Yes, this is a purple whale. And yes, it is flying. ='3

Let me just say that this is something the girl (the one on the back of the whale) is dreaming and stuff. I actually hope to use this in an animation someday, if I can like, think of a decent little story to go with it. ='D
Also, you can see a detail of the girl here: [link]

I love this.
I thought I'd just ask, is it okay with you if I get a tattoo of this?

You're free to get this as a tattoo. I'd love to see a photo of it if you get it done by the way. =)

I love the feeling in the picture. To me it calls out for a children's book about that little girl and her flying whale. :)

Oh please, one day... after your first book will be released please send me a message. I will be so happy to purchase it. I too wish to become a children's book illustrator. I'm working every day to improve my drawings. Maybe some day....who knows :)

Oh, it'll still be a while before I'll be illustrating though. =P
I'm right now studying Graphics Design, with my main option being Illustration. Currently in my first year, which means I still have at least three more to go after this one (if all goes well). So I doubt I'll have any books out soon, sadly. ^^;
And I'm sure you'll be an illustrator someday! Just keep on drawing and I'm sure you'll get there. =D

Wouldn't it be cool if instead of cars we'd all have a flying whale to travel with? =D
Though of course I guess we'd need a really big garage with every house then... Hmmm.

no, but it was made into a NZ movie called - Whale rider, a film by Niki Caro.
maybe ask through your dvd/movie store :)

(i have the movie, just read a bit from the back of cover)
In a small New Zealand coastal village, Maori claim descent from Paikea, the whale rider. In every generation, a male heir has succeeded to the cheifly title. When twins are born and the boy dies, Koro, the cheif is unable to accept his grand daughter Pai as a future leader. :)
Great movie, has won a few awards.

Bedankt. Heb het nog niet gevraagd. Ik ga nu binnenkort (hopelijk) aan mijn opleiding voor illustratie beginnen. Daarna kan ik dat natuurlijk wel doen (heb trouwens al heel het verhaal en de indeling van het boek enzo). =3
