18.02.20 WWF Exploration—

Some tests we did for the WWF FSC project. Ultimately we weren’t able to pursue this project in full 3D, but we’re kind of obsessed with how it turned out :D

17.05.23 WWF Vaquita—

In the same vein as the living river dolphin illustrations, we were asked to illustrate a hopeful image of the vaquita to encourage the Mexican goverment to strongly enforce their ban on illegal gill net fishing.


Vaquita are a type of porpoise, the smallest living cetaceans, the most rare and sadly on the brink of extinction.

They are incredibly shy of humans and very skiddish which makes getting a good image of a living vaquita quite difficult.
