Striped Surgeonfish

Last month I guided a Dutch lady for two weeks. We went to Waigeo island Raja Ampat and Sapormangganauw beach of Tambrauw. We visited the nearby beach for snorkeling during the trip. We also did hiking in the forest to watch paradise birds. It was nice to have some fun during the trip. We saw this beautiful Striped Surgeonfish at depths of between 1 to 6 meters. Using my underwater action camera Brica B-Pro5 Alpha Edition, I took pictures of the fish and the marine life as a whole. There are also a lot of other fish such as butterflyfish, black-tip shark, and grouper. Below is the picture of Striped Surgeonfish.

After completing my two weeks trip, I decided to make some drawings based on what I saw. The first one was Frigatebird. I uploaded it in my previous post in this blog. Now I upload the Striped Surgeonfish in the form of a digital illustration. I created it using Autodesk Sketchbook. I also uploaded the same artwork to my digital artshop in redbubble. You could click this link: Tropical Fish Art to buy the following digital illustration in the form of T-Shirt, mugs, throw pillow or drawstring bag. In addition to this fish artwork, there are other drawings as well such as orchid, whaleshark, birds of paradise, butterflies, and human figure.
Striped Surgeonfish is a tropical fish that lives in coral reef environment. I often see it when I guide tourist on a snorkeling, and freediving tour in Raja Ampat, and Tambrauw regency. Its body is decorated with blue and yellow lines. Its tail is blue.

I work as tourist guide in my daily life but I like drawing a lot. While guiding tourist in the forest or at the beach, I see wildlife which later will become inspirarations for my next art projects.
If you are interested in art and wildlife tour and want me as your guide while traveling to West Papua province of Indonesia. Please, contact me (Leo Roring) by whatsapp to: +6281332245180 or email to:
