This is in no way shape or form intended to be racist (…my roommate told me to point that out). Anyways, as I have stated before, I was inspired for this week’s concept by The Cove, which is a 2009 documentary about the slaughtering of Dolphins in Taiji, Japan by the Japanese. This illustration is suppose to represent “saving a dolphin’s life by fighting back against what is wrong.” I drew everything in this photo in Illustrator CS5, except for the Life Savers logo, and it took about 4 hours to complete.

In case you haven’t heard, the plastic soda rings that hold your 6-pack together are dangerous to dolphins. They can get their mouths caught around the rings, and cut themselves up severely or even drown. I created this graphic in Illustrator CS5 and wanted to express the right way to recycle so you can save a dolphin’s life.

I realize this doesn’t exactly portray a Socially Conscious issue, but I chose to do a more artistic piece with the title of “Jumping for Life Savers.” I chose not to add the text to the piece because I wanted it to more artistic than just an advertisement. I created the dolphin out of chopped up pieces of Life Savers, as I was inspired by the girl’s tiger we critiqued in class.



24. Be a Life Saver for Dolphins Flyer

As stated before, I was inspired by The Cove, a documentary about the slaughtering of dolphins in Taiji, Japan. This is flyer about how to get more involved with supporting the cause to stop this slaughterhouse with Life Savers as a sponsor. I understand this would be way too wordy to ever be an ad, which is why it is more of an informational flyer.



23. Save the Dolphins Button

After recently watching The Cove, a documentary about the slaughtering Japan inflicts on its dolphin population, I was very affected on their cruel intentions. My socially conscious issue was inspired by the documentary, so I decided to start off simple by making an awareness button. Last year, I had created a digital painting of a dolphin (so yes, I painted the dolphin) and decided to use it as my main eye-candy of the piece.
