Plantimal 3
Graphite on Bristol board.
Original Drawing Size: 18” high by 24” wide.    
Year of completion: 2015.

The creature in this drawing has plant-like and animal-like components (thus “Plantimal”).  The cube-like forms might reflect forms descended from distant machine ancestors.  The background is taken largely from a view of mountains south of Interstate 10 just North of the Arizona-Mexico border.
