Narwhal Rain (the painting)

The painting the world has been waiting for. Well maybe not the world. This is for a show, at the Society of Illustrators Museum of Illustration NY, called Earth: Fragile Planet. It was an honor being invited to exhibit. The show is not for awhile but I finished early in order to move on to other things. It is 12x16 inches acrylic on panel.

Amazing. So many worlds come to mind when I look at it. The blood stained horns and the target on the polar bear's head... Hm.

Have you seen Paul Nicklen's book POLAR OBSESSION? Came out a couple of months ago - big coffee table book. Breathtaking photos. Saw my first photo ever of a narwhal in his book - I had only seen artistic representations and before, and a horn in a museum. My favorite animal. I have enjoyed viewing your narwhal odyssey. Thanks!

This is something I would definitely buy a print of. I would say buy the actual painting but I'm a broke ass illustration student.
