The beluga whale

The Whale Trail is a public art display, very much like the painted cows display. Fiberglass whales (sperm and beluga whales) were the subject to be painted. The finished painted whales were placed all over the Southeastern Connecticut and Rhode Island (www.thewhaletrail.com). As one of the artists chosen for this project, my proposed idea was “The Illustrated Whale”, inspired by Ray Bradbury’s sci-fi novel “The Illustrated Man” as well as international tattoo art. Here are my color sketches.
