West Country Chimera

After experiencing the floods in Somerset, in 2013/2014 my imagination let fly with the thoughts of West country islands being cut off for thousands of years and the flora and fauna evolving independently.

A number of projects came out of this concept.

One was the West Country Chimera drawings. Hypothetical hybrids of Endangered West Country creatures, created using pen and ink on paper. I am aiming for TWELVE in total. Eventuuuuually.
