New Salmon Artwork
Recently, I (Yiwei) was approached by the Monterey Bay Salmon and Trout Project to illustrate the cover of their new brochure. I just finished the drawing and thought I'd share the picture I created with you.
I used colored pencils to depict coho salmon as they journey through the redwood streams to their spawning grounds. Hopefully, you'll agree that all the art classes I took as a kid paid off!
Although I don't consider myself an artist, I do like honing my drawing skills once in a while, especially to advance scientific communication and knowledge. If you follow and/or support our project, you'll continue to see us strive to connect science and artistic expression through sketches, drawings, photography, and many more avenues!
