All of my drawings contain hidden animals, people or objects. The squirrel comprises 64 hidden animals and one Chaz face. I hide my face in most of my drawings. The artwork is done with Rotring Rapidograph pens with points as small as .13mm. They are done on 100 pound acid-free bristol board with plate finish.
I start with a pencil sketch of the outline of the animal and some basic detail. I look for shapes of smaller animals and add them. Then I keep adding animals until the drawing is completed in pencil. It’s like building a puzzle. The final step is inking it in. The drawings are meant to take a break from the hectic 24/7 pace and think about nature and the amazing creatures who share our planet.
Many drawings come with an answer key showing the hidden animals or objects. The keys are 11″ x 14″ and are included at no charge with the purchase of a matted print, framed piece, poster or puzzle.
