Ballpoint Pen Drawings – Larry Foster

Starting in the late 1960s, whale-tail sculptures became an obsession in the LF camp of Cetacea. Larry commented, “Curiously, after all these years, I continue to be a proponent of a whale-tail sculpture. Imagine the full-size flukes of a right whale. Right-whale tails are clean, eighteen or twenty feet wide, and their forms compel massive aesthetic response. Such a construction would be memorable and inspiring. I love and recommend the idea.”
