COMMENTARY:

Bob Frisch, a Yukon naturalist and renowned birder. Based on a photo by Paul Von Baich.

This is my first serious attempt at copper engraving in the early 1980s. I was trying to channel the amazing 16th-century engraver Albrecht Durer. I think I managed a modest success except for a few anatomical peculiarities in the drawing.

So great if you could take a minute and leave your thoughts on this.
