Last winter, while working in New York, Mike Macchione and I used to watch the Sea Shepherd documentaries in the conference room during lunch. That was the first time I heard of them. I was really impressed to see how bravely they confronted whalers, the way their actions were directed to be effective, fearless yet not necessarily violent.
A few months later I went to an Xavier Rudd’s show in Barcelona and noticed that he was selling the Sea Shepherd’s merchandise along with his own. Inspired by this, I created the artwork of a whale and offered it to the Sea Shepherd who accepted it with amazing and inspiring kindness and warmth.
