- World Tapir Day 2012
Illustrations and a design project for www.iheartungulates.com
- I celebrated World Tapir Day 2012 on my artist's blog, www.iheartungulates.com, by painting a guide to the world's 4 tapir species, and creating a downloadable paper tapir mask that viewers could print out on their home computer and assemble themselves. As a twist, I asked participants to email me a photo of themselves wearing their masks, for a chance to win a copy of my self-published book, Tropical Forest. The winning entry - from a phenomenal team of tapir zoo keepers from the UK - was a photo of 3 proud keepers AND two of their tapirs in captivity... made my day. And a half.
