In conjunction with the Winnitron Ressurrection Jam: Halifax being held in Halifax, Nova Scoatia. The themes were "Land & Sea" and "Resurrection".

Jonah and the Whale
by Adam Hartling from Halifax, NS
Jonah is a hard as nails ex cop who doesn't take flack from anyone. The Whale is a crudely drawn whale with a stupid looking smile. For no reason whatsoever, they decide to destroy all the bees in the area. To do so, they need to be close enough to create the rainbow line of friendship to use their weapons. Jonah can only walk on land. Whale can only swim on water.
