Self initiated/university project.
I wanted to communicate the importance of less appealing endangered species of animal by showing they are just the same inside as any other, more appealing, animal.
The illustrations themselves are built up of three separate illustrations; A fleshed out rendering, skeletal structure, and coloured pattern.
The final book displayed the illustrations in two layers. The fleshed out study was printed onto the paper page then the skeletal structure was printed onto acetate and overlaid.
A smaller side project also sprouted from this in the form of mocked up mini books as a spin off from The Ugly Bestiary. These can be found here.
