Whale Sculptures by John C. Jackson
From the well-known Sperm and Humpback Whales, to the less-familiar species like the Minke, Fin, and Right Whales, Johnny has captured them with great attention to anatomical accuracy and proportion befitting of these magnificent sea creatures.
View the progression of Johnny’s work from his first whale, “Mobetta,” through his 40+ whale carvings of twelve whale species over the course of six years.
Constructs versus extracts – enjoy this photo gallery of Johnny’s extraction process via visualizing, drawing, sawing, chiseling, rasping, shaving, scraping and sanding away every infinitesimal fiber not “whale.”
This series of life-like whales was created to raise awareness about the plight of these endangered species and to offer some much needed financial support to the American Cetacean Society, champions of their survival.
