The American Bestiary
A bestiary is a catalog of animals, birds, and other natural (or imaginary) phenomena. Intended not as a textbook but as an inspirational (and often scientifically dubious) compendium, the bestiary first appeared in ancient Greece, but the form achieved greater popularity in the Middle Ages.
So, we thought it was about time to highlight America’s most celebrated mythical beasts with a modern-day illustrated bestiary of the fifty absolutely made-up, imaginary monsters that definitely aren’t creeping around your home state waiting to strike.
For this "American Bestiary: The Most Famous Mythical Creature of Every US State, Illustrated" all illustrations were inspired by the The Aberdeen Bestiary and were created in Affinity Designer for iPad Pro, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop with Wacom Cintiq.
