Fine art illustration of a Short-Beaked Echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Short-Beaked Echidna was completed on 7.29.2013. I love the Australian animals – so distinctive, unusual and unlike many of the other animals I draw. I had been meaning to draw an Echidna for some time, but never found the time or enthusiasm. But I received a request from a colleague and decided to create the drawing over the weekend. I still cannot really comprehend the idea of a egg laying mammal!
