Interesting projects come my way all the time. As a part of the Tiffany’s Fundraiser for the Hawaii Humane Society, I’ve decorated ukuleles for donation.
The founder of Jupiter Research Foundation, an organization that launches whale-o-phones every year off of Puako to listen and broadcast humpback whales songs over the internet among many other innovative scientific projects, asked me to decorate one of his ukuleles. The decorations on the ukulele were inspired by humpbacks and their songs. I imagined the sound waves of the humpback songs emanating through the ocean. The sides were roiling waves and the top of the ukulele featured the whale tail that symbolizes what most of us see when we look out across the ocean in the winter months.
