The Surface

Title Origins:

Dakuwaqa - according to Wikipedia. Another link to the actual legend of Dakuwaqa. 

I named my comic strip “Oh, Dakuwaqa!” after I heard this intriguing name on a TV episode of 'Bones’. In Fijian mythology, “Dakuwaqa” (Dakuwanga) is a shark-god. However, I am not from Fiji so I really hope this isn't offensive in any way to the good people of Fiji.
I didn’t name my character after Dakuwaqa the shark-god, nor is it about the Dakuwaqa himself. When I decided on "Oh, Dakuwaqa!" as the title for my comic, I used this phrase because it sounds like an expression of exasperation in a way that is relevant to the sharkish theme of my comic without taking the Lord's name in vain. People generally assume that this is the name of my shark character. The truth is that none of my characters have names. They simply represent different personalities, ideas, situations and interactions

Inspiration: Probably every comic/cartoon with animals.
History: I don't know why or how I started sketching the shark. I just remember liking sharks since I was a child and doodling this character while in college.
Objective: To vent when words don't work. 
Art experience: None really.
