This Otter drawing perfectly summed up how I felt at the time of drawing him. It was towards the end of a move to a new home; I was praying to the gods as I just wanting the madness to end lol
I had a cool experience at work while doing this drawing though. I was listening to some trance music and I very clearly in my head, saw Mr Otter come off the paper and start jumping around on me as I was trying to draw him. Then I looked around and my Art Studio was full of Otters lol
This is why I love Trance music, it makes your imagination go crazy! :)

“As an aquatic animal, the otter is a symbol of life. Why? Because the prime symbolic meaning of water deals with the divine feminine, which is a major life-giving energy. Water (and otters) are symbolic of creativity, fluidity and transitions.“

Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?
I have. I am fucking crazy.
But I am free.” – Lana Del Rey
