Chum Salmon Run!

Last week I was lucky enough to go and visit the Natural History Museum Wildlife Photographer of the Year award exhibition. Obviously inspired by the photography on display, I set about creating some illustrations based on what I had seen. One such photograph was of a bear thrashing about in the water with a salmon in its mouth. This made me want to create my own little image based on the great salmon runs around the world, and the long journey many salmon make, only to wind up jumping into a giant bears terrifying jaws.

Here be the outcome...
