Fine art illustration of a Spotted Salamander (Ambystoma maculatum.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Spotted Salamander was completed on 9.13.09. All amphibians are favorite subjects of mine, but for some reason salamanders are special. One things that draws me to them is that many of the species appear to be “smiling.” I know they aren’t, but like frogs their faces have so much character. The drawing is based on a photo by Andrew Hoffman.
