Keel-Billed Squid


Keel-Billed Squid by Meg Lyman

11×14″ gouache on Canson board


My commission requests are getting really interesting! This is one of my recent ones, and a favorite. I am having a lot of fun putting various animal patterns on cephalopods (see below: poison dart), and this commissioner wanted me to put the Keel-Billed Toucan pattern on a squid. Birds are so colorful and this one is particularly pretty. The hardest part was figuring out what parts of the squid should correspond to the various bird parts!
