I invite you to collaborate with me.  Here’s the thing…

  1. Click and print your Mantis-Porthole below.
  2. Create your own pictures within (and outside!) the window of the porthole.
  3. If you wish to share your work with me, please email an image of your finished art to I would LOVE to see the product of our collaboration!

I feel that in this current age we are all, ‘in the same boat’, so to speak; one giant mother-ship.  This is a project for people of all ages…create one or several!  Please share with your family, friends and neighbors…soon the seas will be less angry.
