This image makes me smile. It’s one of my favorites from this past summer, as I have started recently to pour through some 2014 images in preparation for curating the annual Patton Family calendar. I remember how I was drawn to the fun and punchy artwork featured on this Coney Island mural when we passed it by, and how we all delighted in the playful lines and colors.
I love how Embley’s hand is placed on Yewbert’s shoulder almost protectively, the way she is looking behind her, as if to make sure there are no other jellyfish on the loose. Yewbert, on the other hand, is completely oblivious to any danger. He’s just riding along on a jellyfish tentacle, because that’s what you do when you are going on an undersea adventure.
