This lil piggie never made it to market, but could very well find its way into a painting. Solid reference collecting trip to the edge of the earth (sorry didn't get a pic of that) Thanks to @bar_stroll @thecoastalservice @jtordi for epic times!
Sculpin and orca stickers hot off the press, up on the site and $1 off. Link in bio. https://www.abachar.com/collections/stickers. Not to scale 😜
