The Florida Everglades is home to many unique fauna and flora. I created a 2-D diorama illustration, featuring nature that is native to the wetlands. The print size is 11×17 on 13×19 paper. It includes the Alligator, birds, turtles and fish. All thriving along the Mangroves.

As a bonus, there is an accompanying animal identification chart on 8 x 10 size print, naming the Everglades flora and fauna. I was inspired by seeing museum dioramas of animal life in their environment. I match them up by shape and numbers. The print is available at my shop. Check it out :)

This is the last element in the Everglades outdoor and nature series. I hope you enjoyed my videos and artwork!

By the way, can you name any of the animals in the drawing?

The Florida Everglades is a massive preserve for wildlife. In this Part 2 video of the park, I go on a quest to find exotic birds, alligators, turtles and more. Some of my favorite clips are of an Osprey bird feeding on a fish, and of a Soft-shelled Turtle looking for a place to lay her eggs. Nature in its wildest form. Plus, I share a few quick facts about the beautiful National Park. In the end, I fish on a pier at the Atlantic Ocean, I try to catch (and release) any fish that will bite, and it is a tiny fish called Palometa. Even the name is cute.

Some of my art, both graphic and illustrative, are featured in the video too. Check my  short video out, Everglades Wildlife Up Close, and enjoy! Which animal do you like or wish to see in the Everglades?

I am working on a series of sketches about Florida wildlife. I am hoping to tie the illustrations with a video I am also creating on the Everglades.

For starters, today’s drawing is of a predatory Osprey bird, swooping across the sky to catch a nice fish for a meal.

Stay tuned for more :)

Happy weekend!
