day one-hundred-and-forty - beluga whale

yay another chance to quote mr scruff!

'there's a whale, there's a whale
there's a whale fish he cried
and the whale was in full view'

a beluga whale that is - or white whale if you like - one of the smallest whales around town. sea-town.

it's a simple drawing, but i think it suits the species. pure white and free of detail. apparently they are born brown or gray, and slowly fade to white as they mature. that's a nice way to transition into adulthood me thinks.

'whales, i am your friend'
