Fine art illustration of an Atlantic Blue Crab (Callinectes sapidus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Atlantic Blue Crab was completed on 9.14.2012. I love drawing some of the animals you’ll find along the seashores of North America. When the Atlantic or Chesapeake Blue Crab came up in the 50 State Project (as the state crustacean of Maryland) I was happy to add it to the image library – although it proved to be a pretty challenging image to complete, with the intricate legs and shell of the crab along with the many colors that faded into one another.
