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!

Our salmon has another near brush with danger.
Will he make it to his destination?

I wasn’t sure whether to include this moment in Salmon’s life, but I wanted to be as candid as possible. Sorry. I don’t want to be a downer. I just want to share awareness and the importance of sustainablility on our precious planet. The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a very good chart, detailing which kinds of fish are threatened and which fish are okay to harvest.

This is the first in a small series I’m working on, which follows the challenging life of a Salmon fish, taken in ‘snapshots’. Stay tuned for more as I add to the cartoon in the coming days.

Happy Easter everybody!

In the depths of the sea, two giants confront.  This is an original artwork of mine, done with pen and ink, and then color painted in Photoshop.  Prints are available for sale in my store.
