I found this lovely quote by Edith Wharton, the Pulitzer prize-winning author, and made this painting and pencil sketch on wood.
In 2015 the Tapirulan Illustrators Contest asked people to interpret and illustrate ‘SOS’, and below is the image I created, showing many species, some less familiar, that are in danger of disappearing if we do not make an effort to save them now.
Watercolour and coloured pencil, digitally assembled.
A small sketch of an otter, one of my favourite animals.
Otter populations are dramatically decreasing and most otter species are near threatened, vulnerable or endangered, according to International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Otter Specialist Group. Let us take care of those that remain.
Prints of this little guy will be available at this months Dundee Ministry of Crafts Fair.
