A dear, old wise flatback turtle (Natator depressus) chilling out and doing its thing. Unlike the other 6 marine turtle species, these beauties have a small geographic range and are endemic to coastal Aussie, Indo and Papuan waters, only nesting on northern Australian beaches. They like to keep it local, rather than embarking on long, open ocean migrations like their fellow buddies.

Unlike the greens, hawksbills and leatherbacks, they’ve got this incredibly smooth low, flat carapace (shell on their back), which is one of their defining features. It was really important for me to try and capture this smoothness in the illustration. I feel like this flatback is a serious one; wise, considered, not going to pull out any crazy party tricks. Just going to stick to what it knows, not explore over yonder. Like the old man who gets his newspaper at the same shop every day, wears the same clothes, eats at the same places and would never consider buying a one-way ticket or a caravan. Yeah, we all know someone like that.
