I love the style of these drawings by Amy Ross which borrow from traditional botanical illustration. She describes them as implausible hybrid creatures, created by morphing animals with branches and mushrooms.
Irina Troitskaya’sMatreshkas are so amazing! There is a specific theme for each series. One series is ‘the most popular animals from Russian fairy tales’ another is ‘naturally white animals’ (first image below). I love that she includes her sketches!
