Giant oarfish have been one of my favourite animals for so many years but i recently watched Netflix's Our Planet series and was stunned at the new and incredible footage of oarfish which they captured. I had to paint them again! They are the longest bony fish in the world coming in at over 10m long and so little is known about them as they are so difficult to find.

I also went to a cute local firefly festival at an elementary school here where i'm living in Japan and was happy to see hundreds of adults and children as excited about seeing insects as i am all the time.

So here are both of these things combined. :)

Magical! It took me a while to realize the blue poles were fish.
