Design Inspiration

Reminded of Japanese tropes of depiction of the so-called American ‘black ships’ which forced the nation to open its ports (triggering enormous massive social, cultural and economic upheavals) Henry Turner illustrates the arrival of human vessels in the subantarctic islands and further south in these terms. The changes caused by humanity in these regions are surely orders of magnitude greater than we as humans can imagine at this time. Penguins everywhere are faced with a precipitous changing environment which it seems they shall be fortunate to survive. And for all that, the Southern Ocean is still awe-inspiring for its wildlife.
