swell illustrations

Swell shark development sequence created for the Seymour Center at Long Marine Laboratory. These guys lay eggs in egg capsules, which they attach to seaweed. If you hold the egg case up to a light, you can actually see the baby shark wiggling around inside. It will hatch in 7.5-12 months, depending on the ocean temperature. Pen and ink on Bristol, colorized in Photoshop.


I’m trying to give myself some breathing room for SDCC, which is… next week?! This is a little last minute, but I’m gonna try out taking on commissions. I’ll consider keeping it an ongoing thing, but for now I’ll just take in 8 slots. 8 sounds nice. It was a fun age.
