“Maybe we are all tourists in this underwater world—snorkels are our temporary visas, allowing us to visit this mysterious country for brief slices of time.”― Dallas Woodburn, The Best Week that Never Happened
I was inspired to create this six-image narrative while working on an image for our recent themed podcast: Abyss. To create my brief trip to an underwater world (without getting wet!), I relied on a cool trick that Anna (@fourbrickstall) wrote about. By using Orbeez-style water beads in a clear cake display I flipped upside down, I was able to recreate a minimalist underwater world.
It’s moments like this that I’m grateful for my ridiculous LEGO collection. I never realized that LEGO had released such a diverse collection of underwater animals until I needed them! It was so much fun digging deep and extending my play time. At this point in the pandemic I find it very satisfying to simply play with my toys with no expectations. Of course when it works into a six-image narrative, I consider that a big win!
