Today I updated all the drawings on the website with their definitive
versions. These have more detail and better textures, like the original ones I print. There are also a couple of new drawings I uploaded. Just go to the Drawings link to check them out.

Work in progress

Green creatures only this time. The next display cases are also going to be ordered on color.

Two new display cases

These two cases are soon going to two new owners. Just before they leave my studio I thought it would be nice to share it with you guys as well.

+20 new pages full of creatures… and I don’t even have my big book of inspiration now! Once I completely move to my new studio, Natural Curiosities of Albertus Seba should give met yet another boost with new ideas.
I will post some new stuff in the very near future…

31 cabinets to fill..

Some time ago I met a biology teacher from a high school at a workshop I gave. She saw what I was doing in my work and I was asked if I would be interested in a dozen or so cabinets dating from the early 1900’s.

Today my studio had a whopping 23 wooden cabinet cases and another 8 wooden/cardboard on the shelves. Some of them are almost intact, so I won’t touch those. Others are all turned into dust, not a single butterfly to see anymore. I will use those cases to collect my own creatures in, like the ones you can see here.
