This may sound strange but recently I’ve been seeing many ravens flying around my house or when in the car and it reminded me of when Hershey (my horse) passed away there was a large amount of ravens near our house. One even landed on his back and that’s what I drew here. Not to mention in Alaskan folklore ravens are a sign of death. swipe to see the ref. photo ->#horses#horsedrawings#horsedrawing#graphitedrawings#horsegraphitedrawings
A crop from “Limuw | Santa Cruz Island,” now on view at @lightgreyartlab in Minneapolis! My solo show is up in its entirety for just one more week! Huge thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit these pieces. I’ve been all heartachey missing this drawing in particular. 💚 This piece weaves together many different narratives about Santa Cruz Island, including the near extinction of the Santa Cruz Island Fox. Here a fox is pictured facing down its predator: a Golden Eagle. The Golden Eagle is perched on top of feral piglets, the primary prey species that made SCI such an attractive feeding ground for this mainland raptor. Just visible above the fox’s ear, hidden under the branches of an endemic Santa Cruz Island Manzanita is the endemic Santa Cruz Island Gopher Snake. This snake is a “dwarf endemic” because it is significantly smaller than gopher snakes found on the mainland. 💚 To learn more about this piece, visit my website and take a hi-res digital tour of the 60+ species in the drawing.
'Mini Mushroom I' 🐌available through @talongallery 🍄Snails and slugs and fungi have some of my favorite textures to render with graphite! I especially like the way light passes through bubbly translucent eyestalks of our terrestrial mollusk friends.
