Ballyhoo/Ihe Ihe Sketch

I haven't posted a sketch since August. Last night I started a possible series sea life drawings. We'll see, though. My free time is hard won these days.

Ballyhoo

We used to see these fairly often in the Florida Keys, while heading out to and back from some of the reefs and shoals about seven miles offshore on the Atlantic side. They'd pop up and run in front of the boat, dancing along for dozens of yards on their tails. Kind of like a flying fish, but planing instead of gliding.

I'm probably naming my outrigger canoe after them, when it hits the water in the next few months.
