Whilst browsing through the colourful Black Milk Clothing collection I’d noticed two prominent themes; Creatures of the Ocean and Zombies. With fans of Black Milk affectionately named “Sharkies” and the ever so popular mermaid leggings I thought combining a loosely based ocean theme with a sinister zombie-esk overtone would be a favourite among “Sharkies”.
After watching 3 or 4 documentaries on the deep I was sold on the idea. I realised pretty fast that I wouldn’t even need to embellish the appearance of some of the creatures, as they’re already scary enough. The creepy Angler Fish, Shape shifting octopuses and an Immortal jellyfish was just the surface of what I started to learn about.

I also particularly love the colours of the ocean; rich Blues and Greens and a varied blend of the two, I think green is one of my favourite colours. I also find these colours easy to wear so it made sense for the leggings design.
Black Milk Clothing was a pleasure to collaberate with. They allowed me to swim in my creative space and helped guide my towards the final masterpiece you see before you. The timeline and deadline for this project was not as tight which allowed me to walk away from the artwork and come back with fresh eyes soon after.
