Fine art illustration of a Knobbed Whelk (Busycon carica.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Knobbed Whelk was completed on 7.13.2012. I have been meaning to add more shells to the image library, and the 50 State Project (drawing all official state animals of the USA) gave me the perfect opportunity to do just that, as several of the states on the coast have state shells. I loved drawing this wonderful gastropod and look forward to adding more in the near future.
