About the design:

When I decided to make another sea dragon, this one just swam onto the paper when I was doodling while proctoring an exam. She seemed to be looking at something and so, while I was trying to decide on a whale or dolphin, my friend and creative consultant, Beth, suggested a diver (she’s also responsible for the gaudy purple and yellow fins of the original model). Humans are land creatures, but despite the name we’ve given it, our planet’s surface is mostly covered with water. All that vast expanse of liquid might as well be “aqua incognita” for all we know of its denizens. Who knows what marvels might yet be lurking, undiscovered, in the remote reaches of the deep. Maybe someday you will have a wondrous encounter such as this one.
