Squaremania - this turtle's on fire!

I remember going on a trip to Hawaii a few years ago.  One of my friends swam way out past the coral and claimed to see a gaggle of turtles (what do you call a herd of turtles?  School of turtles?) that swam all around him.

Never being the strongest of swimmers I was safe and sound near the beach...or at least as far out as the coral shelf extended...so all I saw were fish and more fish.

Anyhow - that has barely to do with today's finished illustration - but it does have a turtle in it...so it relates...however slightly.


And what if that turtle was on fire...? Maybe it'd look something like this...
 And, of course, it's more like the turtle torch (like the human torch, only a turtle) flame on, and not as much a cooking burning hurty turtle on fire.

Didn't a cute character of yours have acid poured on it's face last week? I'm sensing some hostility here.. Love your work!
