Calamity and Hope by UlaFish Calamity and Hope by UlaFish
A quick piece inspired by Asian (primarily Japanese) art and culture. This is in no way meant to illustrate the scope and tragedy of the recent disaster in Japan. Just a bit of simple symbolism.

If you like this illustration, please consider buying a print. I'll be donating the proceeds to help with relief efforts in Japan.

The dead jellyfish is very haunting, especially surrounded by so much green, which can symbolize life. Amazing work! I can find symbolism everywhere! lol

I really love how her skin around her shoulders and face are cool colours but her hands are warm colours wrapping around the baby. What paint program do you use? xxx
