Light It Up - Hammerhead Original Art


An abstract illustration of a Hammerhead shark done in black ink and water based marker. Dimensions 6" x 8 1/4". It is part of my "Light It Up" series.



"Light It Up - Hammerhead" is an illustration that combines the form of a lightbulb with the distinctive shape of a hammerhead shark. This piece, part of my Light It Up series, measures 6" x 8 1/4" and is created using black ink and water-based marker. The artwork juxtaposes the fragility of the lightbulb with the robust, yet vulnerable nature of the hammerhead shark, a species often threatened by environmental changes and human activities.

My inspiration for this piece comes from my interest in integrating elements that bring her joy and light into everyday objects. The lightbulb, a symbol of illumination and creativity, paired with the hammerhead shark, underscores the delicate balance between human innovation and the natural world. The hammerhead shark, known for its unique and resilient nature, faces numerous threats in its natural habitat, reflecting the fragility of marine life.

The detailed depiction of the hammerhead within the confines of a lightbulb highlights the idea that both human creations and natural wonders require protection and care. This piece encourages viewers to consider the impact of their actions on the environment and to appreciate the delicate beauty found in both human-made and natural worlds.
