"Travelers" This image switches the roles between divers and mantas. We always go to see these amazing animals, this is them coming up to explore our world. The Image also references how these mantas loved bubbles on their bellies in Socorro.

"The Writer" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. This image is playing off the inking abilities of the squid. Squid release their ink in stressful situations, just like many people do the same with ink while writing in dairies.
