Fine art illustration of a Humboldt Squid (Dosidicus gigas.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Humboldt Squid was completed on 2.10.2015. Recently, when putting together a collage of the world’s cephalopods, I felt the animals – while diverse and beautiful – lacked something that would give the collage some impact. I considered trying to draw the Giant Squid, but instead went with a species that we know more about – the remarkable Humboldt Squid. I saw a documentary on them some years ago, but never seriously considered drawing one. I watched several videos on them, and did a few sketches before coming up with this pose.
