Christina Hess is an illustrator whose work focuses on nature, animals and people, most outstandingly this series of portraits depicting famous historical figures reimagined as dogs, cats and other furry replacements. This series was designed and released in the fall of 2013 on Amazon and iTunes. Hess says that she enjoys incorporating detail and decorative elements into the work she creates, a perfect inclination for a hybrid project such as this. These illustrations are part of her e-book Animals From History. The illustrations are also available as prints and a calendar on the artist’s Etsy shop.
One of the first things we learn as babies are the sounds that animals make, but did you know that these sounds are different in every language? French dogs say “waouh,” Japanese horses say “hihiin,” and Albanian pigs say “hunk!” Illustrator James Chapman brings us this colorful collection of animals around the world making their sounds! 24 years old, Chapman is currently living in Manchester England, where he is working towards a PhD in physics, studying the wonder substance graphene. He enjoys drawing when he’s bored, which he claims is always. Check out more of his illustrations on Tumblr and you can purchase prints of some of these animal posters on Etsy.
