Animal Portraits

 
The following 4 pieces were all created for vegan activists, each piece was drawn from a photo that activist had taken whilst bearing witness to animals going to slaughter or to a livestock auction. 
 
I did this hare designs part of a pair of hares for a local animal rights groups so that they could use it for badges to raise awareness of the decline in hare population in the UK. I then sold the originals at auction and donated 50% of the sale to the group (who chose to send it as a donation to an animal sanctuary).
This piece was created for a vegan activist who helped in the rescue of 93 baby goats from a farm that was closing down.
