Snapper Jim
Maybe the fish grew larger as I grew older, or hell maybe it was a dream, but one of my fond­est mem­o­ries of my cousin Jimmy was him jump­ing out of the back of a pickup truck and into a pond. Tak­ing his shirt off mid run and fill­ing it up with air like a para-shoot as he dove in. He came out of the water with a snap­ping tur­tle in his shirt. Hold­ing the bot­tom of the shirt high in the air to show me and the head of the snap­ping tur­tle com­ing out of the neck whole. Just saw him in 2012 after around 10 years. This was the gift I made him. Its about 9 x 12 scratch­board. Below is my process and final. If enough peo­ple request it I can make some prints with­out the name.
