Fine art illustration of a Box Jellyfish (Chironex fleckeri.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Box Jellyfish was completed on 10.23.2013. When I completed a Mediterranean Jellyfish last year, I thought that is – being the seventh jelly I’d draw – would likely be the last. But when I started putting together a collection of animals native to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, I knew I wanted to include this lethal little creature – because one of the allure of diving is come cases is the danger. And most people know about this animal and the pain it can inflict on human skin. Perhaps it’s not the first marine animal people think of when they think of the Barrier. But I wanted to include it all the same.
