Fine art illustration of an American Pika (Ochotona princeps.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The American Pika was completed on 1.16.2012. While camping in the Sierra Nevadas of California, I took a hike early one morning. I heard, at some distance, a faint peeping sound. I followed it, and came across a pika, which I had known about but never seen in the wild. The proud little mammal sat atop a rock, and peeped out loudly into the morning air. Since that time, I’ve wanted to draw one of these charming little animals, and when I found a good reference photo from Greg Forcey I finally got the chance.
