Weekly Featured Masterpiece – Winner #5!

Hey Jammers! It is without saying that I am very sorry for such a late, late, late, late post. :O

This coming week, I'll have a couple days where my school starts late, in addition to the strong probability of a snow day. I'll use the extra time I get to update this blog.

But without further ado, lets give a big shoutout to lostfairy, Talloose, and Swimminggoofyseal for entering their stunning masterpieces into AJ Stream's ongoing art contest. But who, out of these three excellent artists, will be this week's winner?

The winner is...

Swimminggoofyseal!!!




True to the artist's name, this piece depicts some goofy oceanic creatures swimming through their watery homes. No seals to speak of in this image, but it certainly looks like a fun place for one! :D

My favorite part of this picture is the little spiky pufferfish. So much joyful expression in so few lines! At the end of the day, I think that is what's truly admirable in an artist.

But beyond the adorable beauty of this image lies a message that rings truer today than any other time: be kind to the oceans, because their pristine beauty will someday be confined only to drawings if people keep polluting them at the rate they are now. 

The ocean is truly the heart of the world. The ocean evaporates and rains down over the land, deciding whether humanity's food farms survive through drought, deciding whether the trees and animals survive or not, too. The condition of the ocean affects the winds and weather, causing peaceful days, or devastating storms that leave death in their wake. 

The majority of the Earth's animals live in the ocean. The ocean is 95% unknown, yet almost all of the ocean is lethally polluted. 

Humans are destroying our last frontier before we can even learn about it. So many creatures in the oceans slaughtered by our own negligence before we can even name them. 

So pick up your trash before you leave the beach. Please. Better yet, set an example and do even more good by picking up other litter the next time you go! Bring a friend or two and make a real difference.

The ocean is a home we all live in, whether we have flippers or not. It is in the best interest of everyone to keep it clean and happy!

Or as Swimminggoofyseal puts it, ocean life forever. ^-^

    I'd like to enter again, Doomy! XD My user is, of course, Lostfairy and I'd like to enter any of my masterpieces.

    BTW, Doomy, I asked in the last post if you could do me a favor but I realized you didn't reply back so I'll just ask again!
    Since my bloggerversary is coming up fast, I'm doing a special post where I ask some of my friends to ask ME 3 AJ related questions. Then I'll answer them in the post. :) I was wondering if you could ask my 3 AJ related questions? Thanks!!

      2. What's your favorite Animal Jam adventure?
      3. Out of all the room soundtracks on AJ, (Bass Camp, AJ Melody, Winter's Dance, room music that doesn't have an item, etc.) which one is your favorite?
