A friend in advertising called me and asked whether I’d be keen to do a bit of work on a very cool campaign for Save Our Seas. Basically I was assigned to write a letter in the voice of a squid named Sarah. I tried to keep it quite inky and also a bit distressed – it turned out well I think. This letter, and a few others like it, were stuffed into bottles and left on Muizenberg beach (in a totally non-littering kind of way). Then unsuspecting passers-by picked up the bottles and could read a message from a sea creature in need of help.
So here’s my letter. (It was very flattering to be commissioned to do this along with some very talented illustrators – take a look over here to see all 5 letters as well as to find out how to save our seas.)
