Parting of the ways by LionheartBucket Parting of the ways by LionheartBucket
For Astrid van Ginneken, a wellknown Dutch orcaresearcher, I'm producing some illustrations for her new dutch publication of her book "Togetherness is our home". This image depicts the catching of the young orca. Seperated from her mother by a net and moved away by the divers to the waiting sling.

This piece is not finished yet but gives a good indication of the final result.

Very beautiful illustration and amazingly realistic as always. I'm sure they'll be a great contribution to the book :) Any idea where I could find the Dutch version and what it is called?

Dat zou eigenlijk betekenen dat mijn oma de laatste heeft besteld :o
In het engels is hij er wel, maar dat is op Amazon.com :XD:

The book is not printed yet. Even the Dutch title is unsure now. But I will let everybody know when it's ready and for sale!
