Jelly Jelly …not the bean jellyfish the one that stings!!!

So this past weekend, I went to a catamaran boat trip in Miami for my cousin’s birthday celebration. Between raining showers and sunny moments, the Jellyfish was not shy at all to show up for the party and we sort of got close, too close if you ask me... 

My left leg, has a new pattern, is something between the so popular snake skin and a really bad rash.

It is completely swollen and irritated after an allergic reaction from the poison which probably wasn’t that bad because, I am still here writing my blog; but as I mention before, anything can inspire a creative person, so here we are again.

These are the best picks of nature inspired jellyfish items I found, enjoy!

  "Sea Beuty" by Philppe Cramer

Jellyfish are found in every ocean, from the surface to the deep sea. Large, often colorful, jellyfish are common in coastal zones worldwide. Jellyfish do not have specialized digestive, respiratory, circulatory systems, a brain or central nervous system. Jellyfish are also harvested for their collagen, which can be used for a variety of applications. Once again, nature is gifting us with its extraordinary beauty and endlessly inspiring art in so many ways.
