There Be Dead Whales Here!

The Day of the Dead show is going to be open at the same time our show is open in October, so I thought I would contribute some pieces to that theme. However, I wanted to do some works that were different from what folks usually see. And being so inspired by whales lately...

Everyone knows the story of Jonah in the belly of the whale. 
Well, in this version, the whale did not get the instruction to spew Jonah out.

So, being that he had so much time on his hands, 
Jonah started doing some scrimshaw with the whale's rib bone.

One dead whale says to the other, "Why did we go extinct?"
The other one answers, "No one wanted to humpback."
Nice gag - even though they aren't really extinct, nor are they humpbacks.
Just laugh and move on...

Some pieces are just imspired because I find an eight foot long piece of wood in an alley.
