Butterflies are beautiful. And it’s fun to invent your own species. This is a sapphire swallowtail (Papilio sapphirus), and its coloration is based off my original watercolor painting “blueberry limeade.”

This is a print of my illustration. The illustration was assembled digitally from scans of my drawings and my paintings. Since the “original” image is digital, the only physical form in which it exists is as a print.

This butterfly is printed with Epson inks on Bristol. Bristol is an archival quality acid free artist’s material, it has a smooth matte surface and is similar in thickness to a piece of posterboard. Bristol is one of my favorite drawing surfaces.

This is an open edition print that is signed (Sarah Knight) in black ink in the lower right-hand corner. The image that appears in this listing does not display a signature. Each print is signed individually.
