Wild (And often, free)

"Ocean Heart" is an ode to this hauntingly beautiful parallel universe that happens to be here on Earth.

Around this time, last month, I along with two of my closest friends (and co-partners at Illustration Much) finally 
took a trip we had been planning for almost a year.

We traveled to Sri Lanka, a beautiful island I had heard so much about but evidently knew nothing about.
Little did I know I'd come back changed, moved and ready for more change. The people, the art, the beauty.

We rode through the busy streets of Colombo -

 
Mapped our way to Hatton on a long train ride -





And then we did for a countless number of Sri Lankans do, atleast 4-5 times in their life; We climbed Adam's Peak!



We then ventured down South to Galle. If you're an artist, Galle is a dream.








Our last stop was the land of blue oceans, sea creatures and "Ocean Heart," Hikkaduwa.

    




We went snorkeling and the experience was life changing. We swam in deep blue oceans with turtles, fish, coral and all sorts of wonderful creatures. "Ocean Heart" is an ode to this hauntingly beautiful parallel universe that happens to be here on Earth. Where all you can hear is the course of your breathing, and time stands still.

As more chapters open and sadly some close, beauty always remains enduring.
Have a lovely week :)
