Title: Yelling Fox
Artist: Melissa Le Gall
Other Links: Artist Website
This piece is part of a series called “Fangs and fur” in which I wanted to depict predators showing their teeth, symbol of their wild nature and more specifically, their ability to hunt and kill. I’ve always had this odd fascination with drawing fangs (and the iconography that came with it) ever since I was little and it felt right to place it at the core of a drawing series.

Conjurer - Cara V

Title: Autumn Visitor
Artist: Helen page
Theme: Fall
As the temperature drops & the oaks fill up with huge acorns, I have noticed more chattering above me on my walks!
They always make me smile even when they are angry! It’s such a funny squeaky toy like noise!!
Tried a larger scale which A4 to stretch myself a bit more.
Loved the autumnal colours that developed while layering too.

The Traveling Merchant - John Ramsey

Title: The Traveling Merchant
Artist: John Ramsey
The traveling merchant! He looks like he should have a name.

If this were a game world, I imagine that he would be the merchant you encounter inside a dungeon, probably right next to a save point. I don’t really play video games anymore but JRPG logic still informs a lot of my narrative concepts.

Title: Age of Aquarius
Artist: Zahra Hasni
It is said that the age of Aquarius will bring revolution to human kind, revelation of truth, and the expansion of consciousness. Water will clear away the old and bring in the new ~ Aquarius inspired pastel work.

“What does the moss tell your rocky shell?
Of secrets to uncover?
The things I cannot find to save your life?
The words my broken, tired heart yearns to know?
O brother, I helped uncountable strangers, but never you, never you… I am so tired, but will not rest. Not now, not any of my many lives.” – from the tale of the witch and the dragon.

Monkey business 🙉 - Dani St

Title: Monkey business 🙉
Artist: Daniela Tsvetkova
I feel exactly like this chimp every time I wake up, no matter how many times per night 🤪
I’m late with a couple of weeks for the World’s chimpanzee day, but there’s another one coming soon – September 1st is the International primate day, so I wanted to mark it somehow 🌞 Chimps are our closest living relatives, sharing 98.7% of our genetic blueprint, but unfortunately by clearing away the ape’s forest habitat we have put them onto the list with endangered species 🙄
We need to stop behaving as if we’re the only living beings on this planet 🤨
