hippocamp

oh, bless the hearts of my patient friends…! for example, melanie, who traded me a pokemon game for some art.  in march 2011.  i made her a little seahorse brooch shortly after, but only just finished this hippocamp.  kind of funny, now, to realise that  i made her both a sea horse and a water horse (which is the english translation of ‘hippocamp’).  through my recent research i also learned that an 16c anatomist named the brain’s hippocampus after the sea horse variety, because both share a similar curled shape and size.  aww.

for some reason, i procrastinated on this like crazy!! i don’t know why! it’s a simple design, and it was so much fun to make.  hopefully i am off melanie’s shit list how that i have finally paid off my pokemon debt.
