Illustration of an iguana

This illustration was hand drawn using graphite pencils on bristol board. The final drawing was scanned on a flatbed scanner.

This drawing is to be used on drink coasters at a new pool at the Boca Grove Golf & Tennis Club in Boca Raton, Florida. They had an example of a coaster they liked. It was a one color drawing that looked a little like an etching of a gharial wearing an old fashioned ladies' wicker hat with a butterfly perched on the tip of her nose.
They asked for a similar concept integrating an iguana. I immediately suggested an iguana drinking absinthe with a praying mantis, because that's how I think. Anyhow...I made a sketch of that and submitted it. It was well received and everything went smoothly. I got a little inspiration from the works of Heinrich Kley if you're interested. The sketch and the table with my reference and all getting ready to start the final drawing are below.
