Nautilus Races

This week's Illustration Friday theme is transportation. What better way to get around than on a marine creature that has been transporting itself for 450 million years. Nautilus are incredibly resilient animals that don't usually get much attention. Of course, the catch is that they propel themselves backwards, so they may hit the odd thing and they may not take the most direct route! This painting is another in a series of underwater children's illustrations I've done for my son's bedroom.
