tlingit killer whale by Ahlana tlingit killer whale by Ahlana
i did this painting in one night--i used it in one of my classes as a prop for a storytelling presentation.

the tlingit (southeast alaskan native) design i used is my own work, i studied other sources to try to make it as authentic as possible.

acrylic on white board
