Butterfly Project – Back From The Brink

In this project, I have been looking into the protection of British butterflies and the conservation of there habitat. Researching the British Red List of butterflies and looking into the work that the “Back From The Brink” project have done I thought I would base my work on their’s promoting the protection of these animals. The work I have created is Origami designs of the species of butterfly that are endangered or critically endangered in Britain with a “How to Make” sheet as well making awareness of there project and make more people aware of the problems they’re trying to solve.

The eyes and the homeless man being so unseen and hidden has great meaning with the subtle darkness of the design being the very real truth. The man symbolizes having nowhere to go as there habitat is constantly destroyed and the eyes are to show that we need to look out for these creatures and make sure we don’t lose these animals in Britain.


Blue Whale – Endangered Series/Spirit animal

This project has been going on for quite a long time. This 8 foot by 4 foot drawing has been the centre piece to finish the spiritual animals series with the largest animal on the planet being the inspiration for the size of the piece. This mural has been a challenge I have enjoyed massively not only because of its size but this was the first public drawing I have ever done and getting so many great comments from passers by has improved my confidence massively. I also have great news in that I was lucky enough to have two news articles about my public drawing so make sure to check them out with the Lancashire Telegraph and my university newspaper at Bucks New University.


Looking into the spiritual animal of the Whale it is a holder of wisdom, keeper of history, has a great importance in family, very peaceful and is very good with there communication skill. If this sounds anything like you comment bellow.


The Blue Whale is the Largest animal on the planet and can grow up to 100 feet long. There is an estimated 10,000 to 25,000 on the planet making them on the endangered list and also threatened to be critically endangered. Blue Whales are threatened by mostly us  human beings. Water pollution is making them lose there habitat but also fishing boats and there nets to catch other fish damage the whales. For more information and to maybe help the WWF visit there website to see there work and what they have been doing to help.
