Fine art illustration of a Colorado River or Sonoran Desert Toad (Bufo alvarius.)
The Colorado River Toad was completed on 3.18.2012. The last toad I drew was supposed to be the last one for some time. But as I’ve started putting together collections of animals for my CafePress store. I needed a desert dwelling amphibian – and the Sonoran Desert Toad fit perfectly, and was a lot of fun to draw to boot. The drawing is based on a photo by Alice Abela.
