We know you love the mangrove horseshoe crab, because we received an overwhelming number of entries when it called out for readers to add some colours to its life. We had a hard time choosing the best – but after countless cups of coffee, here are five entries that made the cut.
Friends can lift you out of a bad day, and that’s why Annissa Ong‘s entry made us smile. The horseshoe crab is making merry with his friends: the sea star, the crab, the seahorse and a rather well-fed butterflyfish. The six-year-old student from Xingnan Primary School sure makes one creative artist!
We love how 10-year-old Christopher Khong keeps things clean. By painting the horseshoe crab in shades of grey, the Pei Chun Public School student is telling us that the marine creature is one cool and suave dude!
Gwendolyn Lim‘s entry gives a psychedelic vibe – and we are totally loving it. From the colourful corals to the soothing shades of brown on the horseshoe crab, we think the 11-year-old student from CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ School has got an eye for colours – and it shows.
The shades of blue 11-year-old Rachel Goh used for the waters has a calming effect – no wonder the horseshoe crab looks at ease with its surroundings too. The student from Jing Shan Primary School gets two thumbs up from us!
Is it us, or is the guppy swimming in the waters grinning mischievously to itself? Six-year-old Ryan Luke Jude Lazar from St. Joseph’s Institution Junior also added an anchor to his masterpiece – we are just glad it didn’t hit any unknowing marine animals!
These art pieces will be on display at the S.E.A. Aquarium, so watch out for them when you visit. Each winner of this monthly challenge has won a pair of tickets to Marine Life Park’s S.E.A. Aquarium or Adventure Cove Waterpark. We’ll be in touch soon for redemption details.
