This reminds me of Hawaii and the beautiful ocean and flowers.

I drew tropical animals because I believe tropical places should be more protected.

Just as the whale is a big part of the ocean, my phone is a big part of me.

The scenes I drew on the whale tail are all related to exploration.  Whales migrate each year and every year it is a new route to explore. m I have a feeling that mankind will soon make a breakthrough in space exploration.
