I remember finding a square, floppy, 45rpm record, inside of a National Geographic Magazine when I was young. When I placed it on the phonograph I heard the haunting songs of migrating whales.

I listened to it so often that I began to hear them in my dreams.

In the dream I would drop whatever I was doing, climb onto the roof and watch as thousands of whales migrated south for the winter. I would yell as loud as I could from the roof, "The whales are migrating! The whales are migrating! ", in hopes that my family and neighbors would come out side and see it as well.

I hadn’t had this dream in 30 years, until a few months ago.

Sitting around the dinner table with my wife and children , I heard the song of migrating whales. Knowing immediately what it was, I leapt from the table, grabbed my wife and kids and raced out the door yelling “The whales are migrating!! The whales are migrating!”. We stared at the sky, laughing like children, as thousands of singing whales, migrated south for the winter.

I did this image for my children, who always ask about the dream I had of singing whales.

I have been an Art Director in the Video Games industry for almost 15 years. It’s a lot of fun, but it’s a lot more work than most people realize.The hours are long and the responsibilities are many. It has left little time or energy for some of my more time consuming creative endeavors, sculpture,3D Modelling, illustration and film making, especially when balancing a family.

    Have you seen the just new modern version of “Fantasy” of Disney.? Just buy it…and there is a new section about whales emerging from the sea after some assembly done, and lately becoming aereal as these one…I love it…it is the utmost of the fantasy of our dreams, whales migrating to the heavens…and rooting up there, the same that Life came from outer space as really microscopic “star dust” and rooted here after some almost unending migration.
