Artist's notes:

The California Sea Hare was completed in the summer of 2015. I had been diving near the Channel Islands off the coast of California when I first saw these amazing and somewhat comical looking nudibranches. My good friend Jason Knight has recently been taking some incredible underwater photos, and he was kind enough to allow me to use his image to create this drawing. The Sea Hare will be part of a collage of animals I'm creating about the wildlife of Channel Islands National Park.

Information about the California Sea Hare:

The California Sea Hare - also called the California sea slug is a marine opisthobranch gastropod mollusk in the sea hare family, Aplysiidae. This species is found on the Pacific coast of California, United States, and northwestern Mexico (including the Gulf of California). Aplysia inhabit the photic zone to graze on algae, mainly the intertidial and sub-littoral zones. The maximum length recorded for the California sea hare is 30 inches (75 cm) when crawling and thus fully extended, although most adult specimens are half this size or smaller.
