Saxophone Player in a Whale

I was reading something online about whether a person could survive inside a whale. Someone commented that they breathe out carbon dioxide, which is somewhat true but a misleading statement at best (you breathe out 3x more oxygen than carbon dioxide).

I decided to write my own set of reasons of why you wouldn’t survive inside a whale. Air/pressure/etc.

And I thought it would be good to have an illustration of a person inside a whale. Since I play saxophone and you need air to play saxophone, I drew this.


I had thought about drawing some whales after I saw the whale models at the Monterey Aquarium again the other week when we played music there.

And what is maybe most interesting about the drawing is the light and how it goes through the water.
