Description

Every year, in the small Japanese town of Taiji, more than 20,000 dolphins are slaughtered, and the meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is sold as food in Japan, often labeled as whale meat. This school project was designed to help stop the practice. The style of the drawings is simple with the focus on quotes from the documentary. The drawings were applied to several items that could be made available for purchase to raise funds for the cause.
