Skywhale by MaffersToys Skywhale by MaffersToys
Captain Thibault, world-renowned botanist, makes transcontinental journeys to collect samples of rare flowers. Travelling far and wide in his Skywhale, he goes to great lengths to gather his beloved blooming and blossoming specimens. Upon his return home, he likes nothing more than a tall gin and tonic. The Skywhale, by contrast, only drinks milk; gallon upon gallon upon milky gallon.

I fell in love with this the first time I saw it- I'm saving up for a few special patterns, and this is at the top of my list. So glad to find you on DA!

I just found out you have a deviantart and that makes me so excited! I wanted to tell you I will hopefully buy this pattern sometime and make this be probably one of my main mobiles for my future children since I adore it so much!!!! It is just purely brilliant, I adore Captain Thibault's moustache but I also adore the idea of flying whales...I blame Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Doctor Who. But this is just so brilliant :meow:
