Ive produced several prints entitled animalcules. The term was used by the 17th-century discoverer of microorganisms, Anton van Leeuwenhoek, and refers to creatures so small they are like molecules. My animalcules are purely imagined beings. I love the 18thC. lithographs of Ernst Haekel who was known to take a bit of artistic license when depicting some of the wonderous creatues in his vast output.

Those critter designs are fascinating. Do you have more?

Yes I do. I am slowly posting work I've produced over many years. The great thing about printing is I can still produce and sell artworks made over twenty years ago. Some of the "critters" are from way back, some very recent.
