Now Sea Turtles are part of the currency offering geared solely to save our biodiversity.  All part of c.monster’s plan over at Soylent.  But I’m going to post my latest one here first (his copy is in the e:mail).  This version highlights the endangered lemur and sea turtles (pick Ridley/Leatherback or Green, doesn’t matter).

Next will be one featuring a harp seal and there will be gore and coffee stains all over the note.

Note:  If you’re following these, I am not a duck-squeezer or tree hugger but this is meant to irritate people in two ways.  I’ve been making art to rile people up about endangered species.  It looks as if I were celebrating the demise of species on the edge when all I really want to do is get people to stop being apathetic or melodramatic and at least think about the issues.  Shutting the human race down because animals get hurt is idiotic.  Wiping out every last critter of any species, well, think long and hard.  If it is a mosquito… God will understand.  If it’s another critter, let’s chat.  But lets not play all sorts of moronic stunts, pull guilt trips, act like children, etc. etc. etc.

My take is this – use it but don’t abuse it.  We don’t have to bandage up every species for every boo-boo, but neither should we be assholes about it.   I happen to like animals and diversity but not through the eco-terrorists methods.  I’d like to see the hysteria, hype, threats, misinformation, and famous personalities the world over just go away.  Too much dogma for my tastes.
