This weekend I managed to finished my whale illustration. Whales seem to be very popular these days, and I was all too happy to jump in with my own. This piece was inspired by the song “Fish and Bird” by Tom Waits. If you haven’t heard the song, you should find it. It is beautiful and utterly heartbreaking in a way that only Tom Waits can do. It was so much fun to go back to heavy cross-hatching, which I felt like I hadn’t done in a while. It’s a style that I want to keep as a part of my portfolio and it’s something that I love to do.
This piece is also for sale on my Society6 page.
