Fish Nerds Podcast 131 American Fishes Artist Joe Tomelleri

The Amazing James spends some time with legendary American Fishes Artist Joe Tomelleri. Joseph R. Tomelleri has been illustrating fishes since 1985. Joe works in Prismacolor pencil, and his 1,100+ illustrations have been rendered from actual fish to ensure scientific accuracy. He has collected the majority of his specimens in the field so he can study and photograph the fishes and preserve them for use in the illustrations.
