Opportunists

Humback whales in Southeast Alaska are finding easy meals at offshore salmon hatcheries. I partnered with a whale researcher to create scientific figures illustrating whale feeding behaviours.

A Convenient Meal

Visualizing novel Humpback whale feeding techniques

Breaking it down and bringing clarity

3D Re-enactments

New insights into whale morphology

Re-creating the feeding events in 3D brought new perspective and insight into the movements of the whales. This offered a huge degree of flexibility in the process of capturing the ideal poses to illustrate specific behaviours.
