The Cheetah

Here is the illustration for this week a proud and beautiful Cheetah! Cheetahs are animals of extreme beauty and of course speed – they are the fastest animals on land, so I have read recently – but unfortunately also an endangered species. If you like big cats please contribute here:

Hydraulic Cat



An industrial like poster/illustration of a ‘Hydraulic Cat’ inspired by the concept of alternative forms of energy such as hydraulic or electric cars. Of course, without confusing a cat with a car at all, just mentioning it as a reference from where these mechanical hydraulic symbols used in this digital print came from.

Their voices that echo in the mountains , small villages or out in nature, have interesting and sometimes dark haunting elements, and can communicate a strange notion.
