Light It Up - Under The Sea Original Art

"Light It Up - Under The Sea" is a captivating piece from my Light It Up series. This illustration, measuring 4 3/4" x 8 3/8", is created using black ink and pencil crayon. It features a lightbulb filled with an ocean scene, complete with marine life and underwater elements. The artwork combines the mundane with the fantastical, transforming an everyday object into a whimsical seascape.

The inspiration for this series is drawn from themes that infuse joy and brightness into my existence. The inclusion of an underwater scene aims to evoke a sense of wonder and tranquility, beckoning viewers to envision the ocean's serene beauty. The lightbulb, a symbol of innovation and insight, combined with an underwater environment, highlights the harmonious interplay between human creativity and the splendor of the natural world.

I also wanted to explore the fragility of both oceans and light bulbs. The light bulb, a delicate and easily breakable object, serves as a metaphor for the vulnerability of the ocean's ecosystems. Oceans, teeming with life and beauty, are fragile and susceptible to environmental threats. By placing an intricate underwater scene within a light bulb, I highlights the precariousness of both the natural world and human creations, emphasizing the need to protect and cherish these delicate treasures. This piece invites reflection on the interdependence and fragility of human innovation and natural environments.
