Internship work

I would love to be posting photos of my new art pieces; however, I am interning at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the illustrations I am creating for them are not allowed to be posted. :( Hopefully soon I will have some time to myself where I can illustrate pieces for my own use.  I will do my best.  

Common Kingfisher. 
This piece was done in ink with a coquille pen. It was then colorized in Photoshop (my first ever photoshop colorization!)

Haha, thanks Terra :) I did the fish drawing to try to build my portfolio with more marine illustrations but i never could figure out how to finish it. Hope you’re doing well!

My orca illustration showing the orca hunting process of wave washing. This process requires multiple whales to swim close to one another, at high speeds, towards the ice floe. They then dive under the ice, creating a wave that either breaks up the ice or knocks the seal from the floe, making it easier to eat.

A shrike impaling its prey on thorns. Gruesome but fun to illustrate!
