Every now and then I’m asked for permission to use one of my photos. This time the request was different. Instead of printing the photo I was asked if one of my photos could be used as a model for an illustration. This is the result:
Barking Frog – Illustration by Jack Unruh
I wanted to post the original photo with the drawing but both the illustrator and I deleted the original emails and I don’t have a clue which one it was. I know the photo used must be somewhere on the blog but thanks to my superior organization skills, I can’t find it. It is not in the frog category and I haven’t the patience to browse through 400 some posts. You’re welcome to try locating it.
Coincidentally, the day after I received the image the first frog of the year showed up in my pond. It’s incredibly early, frogs should still be hibernating under the frost line. But not this year, today was the 4th day in a row setting record high temps by double digits.
First Frog – March 21, 2012
OK, back to Jack.
I was given leave to post any illustrations from his web site that I wanted. I selected illustrations that could have been photographs I might have taken.
This looks like the woods I’m familiar with.
Some might say this is a mirror image of me.
This reminds me of the Adirondacks. Moose are moving back so it’s not out of the question.
I enjoy fishing so was drawn to Jack’s fish illustrations.

A loud mouth snook
This looks like a small one I caught.
