"When I think of the
orca, I think
of power. The whale is on the most powerful creatures of the sea. I decided to
give this original print a big, bold, ominous feeling. If you were diving or in a small
boat and you saw this orca rushing at you, you might wonder if you were going to be the
first human in recorded history to be attacked. I wanted to show the big, black, bulbous,
prow-like head of the orca and the towering fin, which can be taller than a man on the
big, dominant bull orcas. I wanted to show the swirl of the water because he’s moving
quite quickly, and he’s moving right toward you." - Robert Bateman
