If you know me well you for sure know 2 things about me. I love sharks and I love drawing. So I connected both things and here we are. It's called "Please don't hurt me". I chose this name because most people will think "Please don't hurt me" when they see a shark. But actually it would be more accurate the other way around:

Did you know that for “Shark Fin Soup” more than 100,000,000 sharks are killed every year? Sadly, in several countries of the world the barbaric act of "finning" is still allowed - with this method on high seas fins are removed from the sharks bodies while they are still alive. They are then thrown back into the sea to suffocate or bleed to death.

So I painted the dorsal fin gold to symbolize that sharks are still killed because of just a small body part. To help stopping the shark fin trade in Europe I want to promote the donation project of the EU Citizens' Initiative "STOP FINNING - STOP THE TRADE" @stopfinningeu with the artwork and donate half of the profits once the artwork is sold.

Muss abgeholt werden im 7ten Bezirk bzw. kann ich es innerhalb von Wien und Niederösterreich und Burgenland auch bringen!
