Happy 2023! To help celebrate the new year, here is a collection of my 2022 posts from #SundayFishSketch, a fabulous fishy group of fish illustrators, enthusiasts and researchers, initiated and organized by @lampichthys on Twitter (posts are also on IG). Each week is based around a theme, anything from fish who work hard to luminous fish to fish with tiny eyes. The theme is given on Friday and the posts are made on Sunday- check out this fantastic group at #SundayFishSketch. And feel free to follow me on IG or Twitter at @edenart33 for more. Wishing you a creative, healthy and happy New Year!
Thank you and Enjoy!

The wondrous Whale Shark, largest fish in the sea, for #SundayFishSketch tiny eyes theme.
This #endangered gentle giant can reach 40 feet tho its diet consists of tiny things such as plankton, shrimp and small fish.
New fish species: Autumnus leafii. #SundayFishSketch fall colors #fishytheme. An elusive and somewhat terrestrial creature, frequenting fields and forests during autumn months. #leafart #funwithfoliage
Yaqui catfish for #SundayFishSketch moustached fish theme for #Movember. Endemic to parts of Arizona and Mexico, this living fossil evolved 2 million years ago but is now threatened with extinction.
Happy birthday #SundayFishSketch ! And happy Opah-versary! Thanks for the fantastic fishy inspiration @Lampichthys ! and to the wonderful artists and fish fans for making this such a great place to visit every Sunday 🐟💙
The visually fantastic but widely invasive Lionfish, also known as Turkeyfish due to its flamboyant, fanning fins and venomous spines. #SundayFishSketch and #inktober crossover theme, “fowl”.
#SciartSeptember and #SundayFishSketch crossover theme, “divided” The amphibious mudskipper can divide its time between land and water- able to crawl, skip and dance on surrounding mudflats when not in its underwater burrow. #sciart #fishart #procreateart
Flashy lionfish larva for #SundayFishSketch big fins theme. Though beautiful, they will grow to be highly invasive & destructive to Atlantic reef ecosystems due to their venomous spines, voracious appetites and high spawning & dispersal rates. #sciart #sciviz #procreateart
Red snapper, also known as huachinango or pargo in Latin America, for #SundayFishSketch fishes of Mexico theme. This long lived fish can grow to 50 lbs and is found as deep as 300 ft, often in groups around reefs or oil drilling platforms #CincodeMayo #sciart #fishart
In honour of punday #SundayFishSketch, here's my Hippoglossus stenolepsis, just for the halibut... Fun fact: they tend to migrate in clockwise direction, from shallow feeding to deeper spawning grounds. Happy Birthday & best fishes
The Yellowtail Snapper (Ocyurus chrysurus) for #SundayFishSketch blue & yellow theme. These bright beauties can be seen in & near reefs in Atlantic waters. #sciart #makeartnotwar
#SundayFishSketch fantastic flying fish theme. The flying fish constellation, Piscis Volans (now Volans), was named in the late 1500s by Dutch navigators PD Keyser and F de Houtman. Happy #Pisces season, fishy friends! #fishart #sciart #procreateart
Coming in with a gold (ish) and silver (ish)…colour varieties of the elegant, endangered Asian arowana- also known as dragon fish- for #SundayFishSketch excellent Olympic battling fishes theme. #fishbowl #procreateart #sciart
