Animals and their incredible complexity has always fascinated us. We have been interested in animal stories; their intelligence, skills and culture. Searching for their features, characteristics, survival skills, chasing exclusive species.
Animals as our favourite subject, intersects with the fields in our interest, art and science. As Goethe quoted that ‘You really do not see things until you draw it’.
Ink is a perfect way to draw detailed animals, no erasing, no undo, no redo has always been a challenge on paper. Each drawing process started with a couple of sketching, discovering the anatomy and capturing the details, adding feathers and light until to get the true and natural look for each. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have had creating it.
The original drawings are made on paper with ink, then each animal drawing posed on silk, and screen printed by hand on high quality fine art paper. For now, we have 6 animals and we made only 25 copies for each.
