There are some animals are are more fun to draw than others, and one of those is the sea turtle. I think it is because its fluid yet structured lines lend itself well to brush and ink. Crustaceans are fun to draw, for the same reason. Sea urchins are not fun to draw.

This drawing will be in a small booklet called "Sea Babies", for a program at the Birch. I was asked to put a beach in the background. I'm actually not sure what sort of coastal habitat exists along beaches on which sea turtles hatch, so I made up an idealistic, mountainy foresty scene. Come to think of it, I should have drawn human habitat: a shoreline crowded with high rise buildings.
