The time has come (...almost)!! 🏼 All endangered animals (and some of my other artworks) will be available at: yangafrica.bigcartel.com at 5:30 pm AEST. I have tried to make it fair for everyone by only opening up my website at the designated time. Most artworks are available as originals only. Some of the more popular designs are available as limited edition prints. I'll endeavour to pack and ship all paintings (myself) within 2 weeks of placing an order. Beneficiaries of these sales are as follows: @tikkihywoodtrust@painteddogconservationinc@conservationecologycentre
I'm excited to support the wonderful work these organisations do, and thank everyone for their continued support of my work! 🏻
Love getting presents from talented, dedicated (and crazy) #pangolin colleagues. I'll be fluent in Malay by the time I've finished it!
Pangolin and Porcupine Playing Ping Pong is complete! I am super happy with how this illustration came out. This sketch had been in my sketchbook for literally years. It makes me feel so proud to see my idea go from brain to paper. Hope this one makes you happy too! Prints are up in my shop!⠀
Day 2 of the #pangolin workshop and lots of problems to solve to conserve the Sunda pangolin
This was taken a few weeks ago when the young #pangolin that we confiscated from poachers on the Park's western boundary, and were looking after here in #Garamba, was out on a walk looking for termites. Her mother had been killed and she was weak and slightly underweight when the Park rangers brought her in. After spending a month at headquarters gaining strength and weight, she was recently released back into the wild. It was fascinating to get to know her over the month and watch her walk, feed, drink and sleep - Something that is not often witnessed. Pangolins are the most trafficked animal in the world and many of those poached and removed come from the Central African forests.
Work in process. I started this a couple of weeks ago on a rainy day in Stone Town. Need to find some time to get back to it my India ink pangolin. Desperate to meet a real life pangolin in the wild but they are the worlds most trafficked mammal and I feel like I'm running out of time.
