The Royal Canadian Mint recently released a 25-cent colored collectable coin featuring my illustration of a Sasquatch. This coin is first in a series of three Mythical Creatures designs geared toward kids.

You can also see it at their website here. As a natural science illustrator I never expected to be asked to draw a Sasquatch, but I found it to be an engaging assignment and not all that different from reconstructing fossil life based on limited clues.

Hi Emily!
I like Bigfoot and I like your coin. Do you know how to draw the Abominable Snowman? That would be neat on a coin too!

Thanks Thomas. I have never drawn an Abominable Snowman so I would have to do some research first! I agree, that would be a good character for a coin.
