Fine art illustration of a South American Tapir (Tapirus terrestris.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The South American Tapir was completed on 6/23/2009. This illustration was commissioned by a private client in Belize, and will be used for a t-shirt illustration for the National Zoo in Belize City. The drawing is a composite of a couple reference photos from my Flickr friends. This is the second tapir I’ve drawn, the other being the Malayan Tapir. In both cases the images were drawing with offspring, which I generally do not do.
