Andrew Howells is the amazing artist behind our beloved Zebra, Elephant and Rhino profiles. Howells is an Australian illustrator who has fused Science and Art beautifully to create these incredibly, accurate masterpieces.
As a PhD canditate in Natural History Illustration at Newcastle University, Andrew spent countless years researching, sketching and observing the form of the animals he later transformed into pieces of art.
He spent many hours at Taronga Zoo in Sydney observing and photographing the elephants which in turn has allowed a thoughtful insight into not only their form but also their personalities.
"To have reproductive success here, and to watch the playfullness of the calves, and the natural instinct of the mum's, was really special," Andrew says.
His artworks are either:
Framed - printed on artist grade paper and framed using contemporary exhibition framing.
Canvas - printed on 100% cotton canvas, stretched and wrapped around a quality wooden frame.
We find the pieces so life-like and full of personality. Simple colours, elegant design and an emotional connection - the key ingredients for the perefect piece for any home.
