Fine art illustration of a Baird’s Tapir (Tapirus bairdii.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Baird’s Tapir was completed on 6/23/2009.4.3.2011. This drawing was commissioned by a private client in Belize. While I enjoy drawing nearly all rainforest animals, I was a little chagrined to learn that after I had completed a drawing of a South American Tapir, the species that was actually requested this species instead. But with this, I’ve completed 3 of the 4 living species of Tapir. The drawing is based on a photo by Christian Sperka.
