This is the second drawing I did of the giant Finback whale. In order to get 2 elaborate drawings done, I really had to work my ass off. I only had a few hours. This one is a bit more abstract. It's really just the shapes of the bones close up. I loved being able to touch everything. If it was in a museum, I'd have been escorted out. In this joint, I could touch and lick everything. This guy's final home will be the Los Angeles county Museum of Natural History. A huge glass atrium is being built as an entrance way into the museum. The guy will hang from the ceiling. It will be quite an impressive sight. Millions of visitors will eventually walk under this big fellow. As they gaze up they will be looking upon all the bones I touched and licked in a New Jersey ghetto.
