Fine art illustration of a Double-Crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The line art drawing of the Double-Crested Cormorant was commissioned by Stackpole Books for Laura Erickson’s ‘101 Ways to Help Birds.’ I added the digital tinting in 2007. I used to live near Lake Merritt in Oakland, CA. Nearly every time I walked around it, I’d see these interesting birds, either scooting about on the water, or when the sun was out and it was warm, standing with their wings spread drying out.
