Fine art illustration of a California Sea Lion (Zalophus californianus) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The California Sea Lion was completed on 8/28/2009. This is the second pinniped I’ve drawn (the other being a Pacific Harbor Seal. Since moving to California ten years ago, I’ve grown accustomed to seeing these animals in the waters of the Bay Area. They can always be found at Pier 39 basking, swimming or trying to haul their massive bodies up onto the docks. The drawing is based on a photo by A.J. Haverkamp.
