Pictjune Anglerfish
After an exhausting week, here at last is a new #Pictjune

United States
I'm a marine and wildlife artist based primarily out of Connecticut, but sometimes also out of Tennessee and Florida (I travel with my wife for her aerospace job). Even though my pieces are pretty stylized, I do a lot of research to try to make them scientifically accurate.
I have matted prints for sale on my website, so check it out! I'm also available for commission at reasonable prices.
Most of my stuff is also available on t-shirts from my company Nocturnal Sea Printing. E-mail me if you're interested in seeing anything on apparel.
