The Wapiti belongs definitely to the icons among the animals of the North Americans. I was able to see these magnificent animals during my travel to the Rocky Mountain National parks. The bugling elk is a classic-traditional depiction in wildlife and hunting art. My scratchboard technique shows my fascination for the animal in a refreshing modern style. A scratchboard is made of a wooden panel covered with a basic clay layer and the surface is stained with black Indian ink. White lines were generated by scratching the surface and the remove of the ink coat.
