ACCORDING TO CRAYOLA: "Jeffrey Robert... creates Rembrandt-like pieces using absolutely nothing but Crayola Crayons. Jeffrey Robert inspires adults and children everywhere to recognize and utilize the simplest of mediums, one that we've all used at one time or another and most likely have lying around the house, as a tool to explore and develop their creative and artistic side." Decor Magazine 2004
The inspiration for the BLUE HONU ART COLLECTION started with a surf session at a popular surf break called “Honolii” on the Big Island of Hawaii. While there I noticed a great number of Hawaiian sea turtles in and around the inside reef. Especially impressive was the way they harmoniously mingled,swimming in, out and around as we surfed the waves. It was as if they considered us to be a part oftheir sea family! So graceful and fluid in their movements were they. Continuing to be impressed by the experience, I felt that I must color their story through my art of these incredibly calm, serene and laid-back creatures. It is my hope that the Blue Honu Collection along with my other sea life images created with the children's art medium will inspire more sensitivity and compassion from people of the world to live in peace and harmony with this bountiful gift for our uniquely designed sea creatures.
AND THIS IS WHY I MADE THEM BLUE...
Honu Aloha: The gift of the Hawaiian guardian sea creature
Honu Kai: The ocean home of the blue honu Honulectric: The dazzling design of the mystical Blue Honu
Honu Baby: The innocence of the ocean’s sweet cycle of life
Honu Bubbles:The underwater world of color, reflection and movement
