I made a collage postcard inspired by “the Blue Planet” series on BBC2.
This is the cuttlefish. The sea bed is made of breakfast cereal, and the seaweed is strands of unraveled rope.A fish-like being at the top is made of a speckled feather I found.

Martin Hicklin’s work inspires these collage postcards.
