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.
The Rhinoceros sondaicus or also know as the Javan Rhino are the most threatened of the five rhino species with only 58-68 individuals surviving in Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia. Looking into the treat they face it has massively changed with human effects being much less than in the past. Like all the Rhino species poachers have treated them with taking there horns for trophies and to make medicine but the last Javan Rhino poached was in 2010. For more information visit the Javan Rhino page on the WWF website.
For one of my University Projects I’m doing a series of Endangered animals but still carrying the previous spirit animals afterwards. To start this new series I have created the Logo and hope you all like it. This is also on my Redbubble account.
This is the spirit animal of the Owl is this like you ?. The Owl is ability to see what others do not see, see beyond deceit and masks, have much Wisdom and the traditional meaning of the owl spirit animal is the announcer of death but more likely to mean a life transition or change. If this sounds like you comment below.
Another experimental piece with blue and purple Chameleon Pens. Like my previous post this is very different to my usual style but I really like the style and how it has turned out making it look a bit like my previous fox drawing. The Tiger’s spirit animal has a lot of will power and courage but also has a dark side of anger and aggression. Does this match your personality?
Creating this piece, I think this style is not like my work in the slightest. I was looking into using colour in my work but I think it has gone more into a realism pencil drawing. The turtle spirit animal is slow but has a lot of wisdom and is straight and understanding.
The next of the spirit animals, the Dragonfly. Easily adaptable, dives deep into their feelings. Being on the look out for illusions and deceits, but also has a connection with nature.
