Tarpon Head Study

This Tarpon, brought down in January by a cold front too far south into Florida, was frozen and shipped north. His donor card allowed him to inspected, documented , Gyotaku-ed, sketched and immortalized.

The head study above was rendered with stippled pen and ink, then colorized in Photoshop.

His death was not in vain.
