Design Inspiration

We could be viewed by the whales as those who walk and live in the sky. Sky Walkers can be seen surfing throughout this design.
Aaron’s signature freestyle use of the pattern references movement of water, in this case, water running over the tail.
I thought about how whales would perceive us/me visually from their world, and that perhaps I would look more like I am walking on water as I surf waves or paddle out into the deep Ocean in my outrigger. The blue eyes symbolize the water is alive.
