Fine art illustration of a Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish (Forcipiger flavissimus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish was completed on 1.23.2014. I had, for many months, been putting together a collection of marine life native to the coral reefs of Hawaii. Because of some bad information and due to some carelessness on my part – twice – I mistakenly placed fish in the collage that aren’t actually native. With help from Barry Fackler (who also took the photo this drawing is based on) I corrected the mistakes and removed the non-native animals from the collage.
