Description

The Creature Garden takes you on a step-by-step expedition through the natural world, teaching you how to draw and paint 50 animals in a whimsical folk-art style. Your guides on this journey are the husband-and-wife illustrator team Harry and Zanna Goldhawk, the founders of Papio Press, who will teach you how to make vibrant paintings of beasts—both real and imagined. Learn to create:
  • MAMMALS, including big cats, wolves, sloths, and red pandas
  • MARINE LIFE, including whales, sea dragons, narwhals, and giant Pacific octopi
  • BIRDS, including peacocks, cranes, owls, and flamingos
  • INSECTS, including butterflies, moths, bumblebees, and damselflies
  • MYTHICAL CREATURES, including mermaids, unicorns, and dragons
  • AND MORE! 
Each project takes you through every step of the artistic process, from creating an outline to adding a realistic animal pattern, along with suggestions for materials and helpful techniques. Full of lush warmth and fairy-tale wonder, The Creature Garden is a wonderful addition to the repertoire of both seasoned artists and novices alike.
 

The author

Husband and wife team Harry and Zanna Goldhawk met at university while studying illustration. After many late nights in the studio they discovered a shared love of nature and color that sparked many collaborative projects.

Harry and Zanna founded Pappio Press to give their main passion: beautiful animal illustration. The Pappio Press products are designed in house by Harry or Zanna (or both!). Both work hard to make sure that all the artwork they create tells its own unique and beautiful story, with gorgeous botanicals and characteristic animals. We like to think that this is what makes our products so special and covetable.
