A seal made of text by John LeMasney via 365sketches.org #design #typography #Inkscape

The latest in my series of animals made of text, a seal. For the landscape, I used Inkscape’s spraypaint tool to paint with a square made with the rectangle tool.

“Pinnipeds (/ˈpɪnᵻˌpɛdz/) (from Latin pinna “fin” and pes, pedis “foot”[2]), commonly known as seals,[a] are a widely distributed and diverse clade of carnivorous, fin-footed, semiaquatic marine mammals. They comprise the extant families Odobenidae (whose only living member is the walrus), Otariidae (the eared seals: sea lions and fur seals), and Phocidae (the earless seals, or true seals). There are 33 extant species of pinnipeds, and more than 50 extinct species have been described from fossils. While seals were historically thought to have descended from two ancestral lines, molecular evidence supports them as a monophyletic lineage (descended from one ancestral line). Pinnipeds belong to the order Carnivora and their closest living relatives are bears and musteloids (weasels, raccoons, skunks and red pandas), having diverged about 50 million years ago.” – Pinniped – Wikipedia from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinniped

    I am an elementary school teacher and my kids are doing a creative problem solving involving letters and animals. Your idea for animals made out of the letters is awesome! Thank you for inspiring them!

      Hi, Vickie! I’m honored that I was able to help. If you need any other animals, there are lots here from the 365 Sketches project, but just send me an animal inspiration and I’ll be happy to illustrate it. Thank you so much for taking the time to say hello.
