Following my first pen and ink drawing of the kraken that I did a while ago, I felt inspired to do another drawing. This time I chose the unique Blue-Footed Booby, Sula nebouxii.
For many years, I have been fascinated by the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands and one day I hope to sail there with Brett onboard Theros, so we can see these amazing birds face-to-face. It is a distant dream for now but, who knows, one has to keep dreams alive and work towards them! Perhaps, this is one way I can manifest my dream.
Take a look at my boobies
Here is a slide-show of four designs I have produced for downloadable and printable greeting cards, which are now available in my Etsy shop – Wayfaring Sarah Design.
As with my kraken designs, I intend to produce high quality reproductive prints of this drawing in a couple of different sizes that I will make available in my Etsy shop in the coming months. I will first need to find a printing company near where we live on Salt Spring Island, BC that reproduces fine art digital prints perhaps using Giclée. We shall see!
