Fine art illustration of a Gray Whale (Eschrichtius Robustus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Gray Whale was completed on 8.19.2011. After a recent trip to the Channel Islands (which are about 30-40 miles off the coast of Santa Barbara in California) I did some research into the larger marine mammals in the area, and was glad to learn that Gray Whales pass through the area, and sometimes linger in and around the kelp beds interacting with divers. This didn’t happen to me, but it did happen to the people whose photo this drawing is based on: http://www.howardhall.com/stories/greymorning.html
