In his own words......

Recently, and particularly in October 2017, I have been taking the time to develop my illustration and ink skills. I have enjoyed fusing animals together to create new, or literal interpretations of their names.

Nature and humanity have always inspired me, and as with a lot of my film work, there is also an underlying environmental narrative to this series of images. Many of the animals I have chosen have shells incorporated into them, giving them a portable home (which they may have otherwise lost).

Another environmental theme is that some of the animals featured are also endangered, like the Orangutan I have attached. When I created this piece I was thinking of the deforestation primarily due to the logging they are succumbing to.
