Fine art illustration of a Canadian Toad (Anaxyrus hemiophrys.)
The Canadian Toad was completed on 5.26.2013. A few weeks ago I decided to draw all the native frogs and toads of my home state of Minnesota. I had only a couple left – two toads, the Canadian and Great Plains Toads. I found it was a little tricky getting reference photos of the Canadian Toad, but luckily I found a great reference photo on the Cal-Berkeley Photo Library by Richard Sage, who was kind enough to allow me to use it to create this drawing. At some point I hope to draw all species of toads native to North America, although that will take several years no doubt.
