The Pearson Conservatory in Port Elizabeth, South Africa; one of my favourite spots for a lunch break around the center of town.   It's located in St. Georges Park and was officially opened in 1882, named after the Mayor of the town at that time, Mr H W Pearson.  The original drawing is done with a mix of pen and drawing inks. Unframed, digital prints available on A4, 185 gsm archival paper, and is limited to 30 signed and numbered prints.

The Elephant. The largest and most intriguing of Africa's Big Five.  The "Big Five" refers to Africa's most difficult and dangerous animals to hunt on foot. Today it has simply become a marketing term. The existence of these creatures, and their habitats, is threatened by ongoing aggressive industrialization, poaching, and human-induced climate change.   Considering the state of the world, these beasts are vulnerable, and powerless to change their situation.

Giants series -  Cape Buffalo   Illustration by Ryan Allan.  The Giants series is inspired by these animals very clearly, but is also the first part in creating a range of characters that may begin to feature later on with my alter-ego that will most definitely be quite unlike the meak (and possibly mildly sedated) creatures you have come to experience on your little fenced 'African safaris'.  Prints available in A3 and A4

Skull Mine - Lion #2   Illustration by Ryan Allan.  I wonder what we will do, when all this planet's resources are exhausted. Should we move out into space and colonize another planet, will we have learned our lesson or will we apply the same model that brought our home to ruin?  I'm currently exploring topics of species extinction, industrialization, and notions of space exploration (colonization?). This is one of the first pieces in processing this.      Prints available in A3 and A4.
