Creatures from the Deep

I’ve always been fascinated by what lives in the darkest depths of the ocean. The creatures of the deep however remain elusive. What’s down there? Until recently it’s been a complete mystery. Recent discoveries show that there is a vast world we never knew existed. One with creatures that appear so alien they could not possibly be of this earth. Yet, somehow there they are. Each day we learn a tiny bit more about what lurks at the bottom of the sea. Beneath the waves are a host of creatures that appear, at first glance, so hideous, so grotesque, so horrifying that only an artist could love them.

This series is dedicated to the fascination I felt as a young boy the first time I discovered this strange new world I knew nothing about. To the fascination I still feel as an adult when I image search, Creatures from the Deep on the Googles. To the fascination I feel when I realize how much we still don’t know, and to the fascination I feel when I look at that those creatures of the deep trying to figure out if they really exist or if they are just a figment of an artists imagination.gulper eel
