“The Talk of the Sea”

thetalkofthesea-07

In a couple days (this Friday) two canoes will embark from Hawaii on a historic three year journey around the world, using only the sun, wind, waves, and stars to guide them. Polynesian Navigators will attempt to circumnavigate the world in a sacred canoe, Hokule’a (the canoe that legendary surfer Eddie Aikau lost his life trying to save), and its sister canoe Hikianalia.

Artist Kamea Hadar and young artists from the POW! WOW! School of Art and 808 Urban painted a beautiful mural to commemorate this event. The painting depicts Papa Mau Piailug, a master navigator from the island of Satawal, Micronesia.

Becky & Joe are the creators of “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared”, a brilliant video series that mixes live action, stop motion, 2d animation, puppetry, learning, and a touch of pure evil. You can see the first two episodes here and here. They’ve just announced plans to make several more episodes and would love to do it independently so they can keep the creative spirit of the show alive.
