Artist's Description

Hand-drawn in pen and ink and digitally painted in Gimp. The original, stippled illustration is approximately 5 inches by seven.

This particular pencil sketch was without reference, and when I sought reference before inking, I was sort of weirded out by how closely I had already gotten the details. Condors have not been on my mind, at least not my conscious mind. I guess that’s what I get out of the exercise: a glimpse into my own wetware.
One detail that I haven’t been able to find reference for is the opened beak, but in a more restive position California condors are gifted with a most Simpsons-like overbite and great rolls of double and treble chins, so I took a chance, thinking it also emphasizes the dinosaur-like nature of this rare, endangered bird.
And seeing that its plight represents a microcosm of our own, profits from the sale of this initial shirt will go to the The Audubon Society.
