This is a new edition of Claire's creature design art book Iguana Bay 2.0. Originally published in 2003, it has been out of print for several years and it is her most requested title.
Iguana Bay 2.0 is a 96-page full-color hardcover featuring over 200 illustrations in color and black & white. The minimal text is in both English and French.
The first Iguana Bay sketchbook was published in 1996. Studies of male and female figures; big cats, horses, dogs, and other animals; imaginary creatures such as dragons, mermaids, and centaurs; and original creations from the mind of Claire Wendling.
In 2003, her publisher wanted to reprint Iguana Bay, but Claire refused: she didn't want to reprint those old drawings. Instead she offered to execute a new version of each drawing. Her publisher said lets publish both side by side.
This edition of Iguana Bay 2.0 includes both versions of every drawing. From the back cover: iguana bay
