Fine art illustration of an Indo-Pacific Sailfish (Istiophorus platypterus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Indo-Pacific Sailfish was completed on 5.12.11. While I’ve never seen these in the wild, I did see a documentary on these amazing fish a few years back, and after that I decided I needed to draw one. I know that these fish are greatly prized by fishermen, but I hope that one day rather than simply catching these animals for sport, people leave them in the ocean to live out their lives and be a wonder to everyone. The drawing is based on a photo by Alastair Pollock.
