Ichthyosaurs first appeared in the Triassic age, then flourished during the Jurassic up to the Cretaceous. Ichthyosaurs are an early relative of today’s dolphins – built for speed and equipped with razor sharp teeth. In my artwork, it is a prehistoric “dinner for two” as I display them in hot pursuit for a school of fish.


This is my drawing of a Channel Catfish. Catfish are omnivorous bottom feeders, mostly living in slow-moving rivers. They spawn in late spring when the water temperature reaches 75 degrees. Although catfish have very poor vision, that have help finding food in muddy waters through the use of their barbels, or whiskers.
