The Flip Flop Wave

I read an article about flip flops, the world’s most popular shoe; for 3 billion people their only footwear. Millions if not billions of them end up in the sea. That night I dreamt of a flip flop wave.

The original name for this print was ‘Broken’. A breaking wave, broken flip flops* and a broken planet. But ‘The Flip Flop Wave’, well it just has a better ring to it.

Oh, and the flip flops are blue, because I have no luck with blue flip flops.
