My new-to-me artist of the day is Daniel Mackie, of London.

About the Tiger, Part of the Loss-of-Habitat Series:

Above (among other illustrations) is a watercolor of a tiger in its natural habitat. Here’s an excerpt from the artist’s website (but I added the links, for context):

The tiger is one of the most threatened species on the planet. Two subspecies are already extinct, The Bali tiger and the Javan tiger.

The six remaining subspecies are all classified as endangered by IUCN, the Sumatran Tiger which is found only on the Indonesian island of Sumatra is critically endangered, with only 500-600 individuals in the wild. 

So why are tigers in this mess? Habitat degradation. Deforestation and poaching. Tigers are naturally solitary and each one requires his/her own manor, so to speak. Each animal has it’s own territory and they get very upset if another tiger walks into its backyard. There is some toleration and indeed some territories of tigers overlap. But as you can appreciate tigers need space, and plenty of it. The space that tigers need does not fit well with the sprawl of humankind across the planet.

Spanish illustrator/artist Ricardo Cavolo.

Collages are especially popular these days, have you noticed?

I especially like his use of color, myth and folklore.
