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 1980’s. I was trying to channel Albrecht Durer who I really admired – and still do – of course. I think I pulled it off except for a few anatomical peculiarities which hopefully can be overlooked, given the overall impression.
