An Antarctic orca post-spyhop. I'm simply fascinated by these wave washers! Read more about them in my new blog post:…
T.J. by odontocete

Acrylic on canvas, 11 x 14

Over the last three years I’ve had the opportunity to watch a young loggerhead sea turtle grow. I was there the morning he (or possibly she!) was added to the exhibit, the smallest sea turtle I’ve seen in person. Back in 2012 I finished a painting of Murphy, another loggerhead sea turtle I knew who spent some of his life in human care before being reintroduced to the ocean, and I wanted to do the same for T.J. This little guy, also rescued as a hatchling on Jekyll Island, has become quite special to those of us that have met him and watched him develop over these last few years.

The next in my series of diverse marine silhouettes features several species of toothed whale. Read my blog post to see why I made the species choices I did.

Prints, shirts, mugs, and phone cases are available!

SHARKS! by odontocete

I really wanted to post new shark art all week, but I haven’t had much time to produce any! I did manage to get this piece done, though – it’s a stylised celebration of shark diversity. While I couldn’t even begin to represent all 400-odd species, I did want to highlight a few personal favourites as well as those with particularly unusual or striking morphology. Not all sharks are white sharks (even though I did include one – their silhouette is just lovely)!

The featured species are…

• Oceanic whitetip shark Carcharhinus longimanus
• Dwarf lanternshark Etmopterus perryi
• White shark Carcharodon carcharias
• Whale shark Rhincodon typus
• Spotted wobbegong Orectolobus maculatus
• Sand tiger shark Carcharias taurus
• Sandbar shark Carcharhinus plumbeus
• Atlantic sharpnose shark Rhizoprionodon terraenovae
• Scalloped hammerhead shark Sphyrna lewini
• Bigeye thresher shark Alopias superciliosus
• Longnose sawshark Pristiophorus cirratus
• Epaulette shark Hemiscyllium ocellatum
• Basking shark Cetorhinus maximus
• Zebra shark Stegostoma fasciatum
• Blue shark Prionace glauca

This is available as a print, mug, shirt, and phone case/skin! Hope you like it as much as I had fun drawing it. Look for more shark art from me in the coming days!

Recently I planted Critically Endangered staghorn coral on a reef.

That is the coolest sentence I have ever typed. Read about my adventures with CRF in my new blog post, complete with photos and video!…


Moved from Devon, UK to Atlanta at the end of 2009. Marine life, especially cetaceans, have been a passion since I can remember. I teach marine conservation. I love painting, diving, and reading comics... though not at the same time. But that would be awesome.
