This is a fish with tiger stripes. He paints them on himself to blend in to the seaweed jungles of the steamy waters of southern Martinique. He is sure it doesn’t matter if he is hard to see because he is the only fish in the ocean.
This is a tropical fish with tribal patterns on his body. Like most fish – he is confused. Reality is too complex and too trianglely. He sometimes thinks he sees the pixels.
This is a stripped blue fish chasing after a smaller red fish – it is a big fish eating a small fish. This image represents the driving force of nature. Natural selection is what made us what we are. The brutal way nature works to design animals is, it pits lifeforms against each other in a struggle to survive. The most successful designs are the ones that survive to reproduce. It is one of the many natural forces that make life amazing and plants and animals beautiful. It reflects how Nietzsche felt about the Greeks. He saw them as tenacious predators who used their wits to survive, loved war and tragic dramas and they didn’t suffer from slave mentality – a victim’s (Christian) way of seeing the world. He was the founder of existentialism – a philosophy that urges you to take responsibility for your situation. It is a worldview that stems from Darwin’s origin of the species by natural selection.
This is a blue barrel eye fish. The are incredibly cool real fish that have a transparent head and false eyes on the outside and real barrel shaped eyes inside their head. They actually look through their forehead and resemble some sort of alien robot submarine.
Alphie the happy red fish jumps up out of the water to eat fireflies when he is happy. He likes to talk to himself before he jumps. He says stuff like “you can do it Alphie” and “Rome wasn’t built in a day Alphie”. It helps him feel better.
This is a cartoon dolphin jumping out of the water. Dolphins are amazing. They are smarter than fish because they were highly social predatory land mammals who evolved to be able to swim like a fish to survive. They hunt in packs and communicate with clicks and whistles. They have a giant brain and are thought to be some of the smartest animals alive. Go team mammal.
Polaroid monsters like instant gratification. They simply can’t wait a week for their film to be developed. They have to see their goofy fish bros instantly. They can’t be bothered with digital cameras either. Pixels activate their autism. Blue Polaroid monster taking a picture.
This is a green fish with red stripes. He is a happy peppermint Christmas fish. He comes out of hibernation around thanksgiving. He is so sweet that he flavors the water he swims in.
Blue Surgeonfish art for the portfolio. This is a tropical fish named after the scalpel sharp spines on either side of its tail. It is classified as Acanthuridae — or thorn tail. Dorie from Finding Nemo is in this family of fish.
The Angler fish has an illuminated lure attached to a filament on its head that it waves back and forth to attract other fish to prey on. It is a scary looking small round fish with transparent skin, a large mouth, many sharp teeth and bio luminescent nodes on its body.
