Fine art illustration of an Amazon River Dolphin (Inia geoffrensis.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Amazon River Dolphin was completed on 4.17.2011. When I first learned of these animals, they seemed to be about my dream animal – lives underwater, in the rainforest, and is a dolphin. While I was drawing this animal, over and over again I thought about how astonishing this dolphin is, and how sad that the Yangtze River Dolphin is now very likely extinct. I took a little more time and put some added elements into the background, as I felt it was important to show the environment – the flooded rainforest – this dolphin could be found.
