Welcome to the wonderful world of strange animals – an ongoing illustration project where I explore the concept of being oneself through the imagery of peculiar animals. We all have qualities within us that may not seem ordinary to others. Trying to fit in and chase society’s standards is exhausting.
Through the project, I want to celebrate and embrace our unique physical look, perspective, and personality. Just look at these bizarre animals! Perhaps we can learn a thing or two from them. They are one of a kind in this entire universe and they do not have to try to be anything else but themselves. So why should we? Just like these animals, we are extraordinary in our own way and we can allow ourselves to be who we truly are. Be unique. Be weird. Be the strange animals!
"You are you.
Now, isn't that pleasant?"
