The Invisible Mouth by Culpeo-Fox The Invisible Mouth by Culpeo-Fox
"It is not the whales or other sharks i fear. I outswim any living creature. I fear the one that does not hunt, that waits, that stays unseen until you are in its fangs already. No teeth, no wounds, no claws. It only grabs you, letting you drown."
- Kappa

You make my heart hurt and fire burn in my eyes. My mouth draw fangs and I ache to shed blood. ... but I will relax a bit, consider my ways, and give justice a chance to prove innocence. .. One day though, the water will turn to blood and a third of all food crops on earth will burn...
When there is no light, when there are no fish, when the wheat goes scarce, what will people do? How will they negotiate the woe and sadness? Selah

What will we do? We will find another, or we shall die. And in all times when man has faced death, it has only survived. We will continue, finding either a new world or a way to augment our own.
Thus says old Mr. Galt.

Moving and tragic. Most don't know the thousands that die for the a couple pound of shrimp you bye at the mart. And not just sharks die but manta's, fish, seals/sea lions, dolphins, and pretty much anything else.:( Many times I'm ashamed to be called a human.

If aliens exist, their word for "human" is probably an insult.

I'm pretty sure Kappa is referring to the fishing nets we have in our oceans that don't "hunt" but simply "wait" and like a spider's web, you can't see it until your trapped and dead in the water.

I don't know how you made a shark look terrified without anthropomorphizing it, but there it is. And the net is like a big spider web.

What an interesting perspective this offers. I really like the atmosphere of the art and the quote combined. There's a lot of depth behind the imagery and the character that just begs to be uncovered.
I think this would be awesome in an animated children's film, to be perfectly honest. I imagine it would have a vibe similar to The Black Cauldron; excellent art, interesting characters, and a plot with moments so evocative and jarring that you'd taste adrenaline every time you thought of it for years to come.
