Fine art illustration of a Bat Ray (Myliobatis Californica.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Bat Ray was completed on 6.24.2011. I have encountered these animals a few times in the Bay Area, occasionally seeing them in the San Francisco Bay swimming near the shore at the surface. A friend of mine recently caught a Bat Ray when fishing (which he threw back!) so that inspired me to create this drawing. I hope this scene captures an idealized vision of this amazing fish. The drawing is based on a photo by Mark Estes.
