Since I can remember I have always been drawing these little fish characters... I don't know why but I can't stop it so I decided to do a new print with them and here it is! Obviously the message is about having the courage to stand up to the crowd and be yourself - all that fun non-conformist stuff I can't get enough of.
This illustration also makes me think of one of my all time favorite Harry Potter quotes when Dumbledore congratulates Neville for standing up to Harry, Ron and Hermione in The Sorcerer's Stone (even though if he had Voldemort would have beaten them, but that really isn't the point here)
“It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.”
So I am officially dedicating this print to Neville Longbottom, you go Neville, you go...
