Rays! Also… a new shop!

Leave a comment

In line with my previous “Sharks!” and “Odontocetes!” designs, I had to create a “Rays!” version. These flat sharks are so underappreciated next to their rather flashier relatives, but they’re just as fascinating – and some are even more threatened. The five sawfish species comprise the most endangered group of marine fishes in the world, which is tragic considering how unusual and beautiful they are.

I decided not to add the text overlay on this design… what do you think?

The featured species:

• Spotted eagle ray Aetobatus narinari
• Longcomb sawfish Pristis zijsron
• Reef manta ray Manta alfredi
• Motoro ray Potamotrygon motoro
• Bowmouth guitarfish Rhina ancylostoma
• Cownose ray Rhinoptera bonasus
• Atlantic stingray Dasyatis sabina
• Lesser devil ray Mobula hypostoma

Speaking of designs, I’m excited to be launching my new online store today! There are lots of new products available featuring my designs, including… SCARVES! I’m a scarf nut, so I had to order one for myself to check it out. I’m really pleased with the quality of the print and the fabric; it’s lovely and lightweight. There are also new phone cases, notebooks, tote bags and even stickers, so give it a look!Shark scarf? SHARK SCARF!
