011919. Craypas/ink on 9 x 12in Bristol board. •
Craypas are messy and expensive crayons but so much ~fun~. Love the way the texture and color came out (Swipe for detail shots and also for better quality images. Not sure why my phone refused to give the colors justice in the first shot?) •
When it comes to cattle males are known first as bulls. Once they are castrated, they become steer. After 2-3 years they grow to be oxen. •
If you like my work, I’m creating small sketches in exchange for a ko-fi donation. All donations during the month of January will be given to the world wildlife fund. For more info click the link in my bio!

“Double Arch - I” 1986 40 x 30 acrylic and gesso on paper. In this period, Holbrook painted some of his iconic southwestern scenes in using acrylic. What detail in that medium.
We’re having a show in San Francisco in April. Stay tuned and mark your calendars.
This work titled 'Ice Watch' by Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson’s recent public artwork confronts city dweller's with the realities of an issue of the gravest importance but that they perhaps find it difficult to comprehend. The project saw the artist collaborating with geologist Minik Rosing to bring these huge blocks of previously floating sea ice outside various city landmarks across Europe. The ice will, as ice is prone to do, melt, leaving the viewers confronted by the tangible effects of climate change.
In a statement accompanying the news of the installation, Olafur says, “By enabling people to experience and actually touch the blocks of ice in this project, I hope we will connect people to their surroundings in a deeper way and inspire radical change.” He goes on to add that, "we must recognise that together we have the power to take individual actions and to push for systemic change. Let’s transform climate knowledge into climate action.” #FindYourOriginal
For Norwegians, the polar bear is the mist iconic of animals. An endangered giant whos mere symbolic presence is critical to understand Mans destruction of the arctic through gllbal warming in the Anthropocene.
The polar bear has also a strong presence in everything from fairytales to stories, cartoons to folklore, expeditions to research.
I was able to buy this vety expensive and rare and beautiful specimen on auction from Norways biggest auctionhouse, Blomqvist.
This was, symbolically enough, the last animal they will ever sell as there is a strong shift in society in terms of taxidermy as Man is at a crossroads when it comes to environmental issues.
How can art comment this change and create dialog so that we may start asking the right questions to the progress of our species ?
Cetaceans 💙 Some of the most intelligent species in the ocean 🐋 What’s your favourite? Comment below 🙏🏻🐬 Data from around the world indicate high numbers of dolphins and porpoises are also killed by gill nets and in mid-water trawl fisheries.
Dolphins and porpoises are not the only cetaceans being harmed by fishing gear. Fishing gear can injure and kill large cetaceans as well - even the powerful sperm whales may become entangled in nets and drown, or starve to death if gear becomes wrapped around or embedded in its mouth. Over 300,000 whales, dolphins, and porpoises are killed each year as a result of by-catch.
The World Conservation Union (IUCN) recognizes bycatch as one of the greatest threats to the survival of cetacean populations. (Sourced from @wwf)

Flashback circa 2002. Original environmental series attempt. There are often threads through our lives and artwork that we don't see until something makes us take a backward overview. On this feed I show posts from my 'Environmental Inspiration' series, and also images with prose/poetry. I have been thinking of these as a new approach for me. Last night I found old photos of a series I was attempting to do sixteen years ago: various aspects of our environment and related issues... and featuring short bits of prose/poetry. Key concept: the 'selling out' of our environment by a materialistic society. The shaman pouches held symbols related to each theme, but their meaning is lost to me now. Initially I had intended to do eight of these small works, but the Australian one and two dollar coins were too difficult for my eyes. Apologies for the poor photo quality; they were sloppily taken as they were only meant as a personal memory prompt. #symbolism#environmentalart#symbol#symbols#artwork#acrylicpainting#artbyme#artistsoninstagram#environmentalart#threadsandmotifs#flashbackart#paintingseries

#savethevaquita 💙 Vaquita, the world’s most rare marine mammal, is on the edge of extinction. This little porpoise wasn't discovered until 1958 and a little over half a century later, we are on the brink of losing them forever. Vaquita are often caught and drowned in gillnets used by illegal fishing operations in marine protected areas within Mexico's Gulf of California. The population has dropped drastically in the last few years - @wwf@whaleanddolphinorg ————————————————————————
