Illustration Friday-Enough


Click image for a larger view.

This is my entry for IF's "enough" topic. Pretty vague term. Most people can not get enough of dolphin sightings. I'm one. Smart, social, amazing creatures. I am fortunate to get to see them all the time. This is meant to be a companion piece to last weeks illustration.

This piece and the one for foggy would be perfect for a limited edition Serigraph. Or maybe this is a print? Beautiful!

I see tonnes where I live too, when I surf, or just look out over the ocean. I hope this never changes. Great illustration, love it.

Great dolphin illustration. I live inland so I don't see many dolphins. Thank you for bringing them to me in such a beautiful way.

Beautiful again! I'm really loving this style...I've never seen a real live dolphin, isn't that sad?? I'm going to have to work on that!

I like the different direction you're taking with this and your last piece. It's very satisfying and peaceful to look at and the textures and visual rhythms are really nice.

Another beautiful illustration. I agree, you can't get enough of dolphins.

And a fine companion it is Scott! I was just reading a book entitled intelligence in Animals, and the dolphin chapter was fascinating. Their brains are quite large too, almost larger than human brains.

i know, i think a vague theme like 'enough' is harder than something more specific. great dolphins!

It goes well with last weeks piece. I am liking this style.

Dolphins are awesome. My fondest dolphin memory was surfing with one that jumped out of a wave, about 15 feet away from me, as I was paddling into the wave myself. Good times.
