This was done for an illustration class. It's a subscription card for 3x3 magazine. The magazine is devoted to more contemporary arts. They feature young as well as more established artists. Check it out if you already haven't seen it. It's only out three times a year spring, summer and fall/winter.
The general idea behind the illustration are that the fishes coming to life from the 3x3 magazine. Also I tried to tie in the title of the magazine and went for a more literal take on the numbers "3x3", making three fishes (I didn't make 9 cause im lazy like that!). The three fishes show young to older more developed artists in the same pool of water, meaning we artists should support each other and grow together, which is what the magazine kinda covers.
somewhat cheesy but i had fun with it
