Today, I was very happy to receive my fresh specimens of the winter issue of »Waldstück«, the free magazine by Niedersächsische Landesforsten! For a kid’s poster inside that magazine, I illustrated the 16 most common native forest animals species. My graphics are accompanied by photos and some really interesting information.
The 16 forest animals I illustrated are red fox, badger, stone marten, fish otter, raccoon, raccoon dog, fallow deer, roe deer, red deer, squirrel, dormouse, wood mouse, rabbit, hare, hedgehog and wild boar. I drew them in shades of grey, so marking and habit are clearer and easier to compare. After Leaves, Tracks, Birds, Trees and Fruits, this is already the sixth time I’m drawing for the »Waldstück« – and I enjoy the researches, the illustrations and the way nature graphics enrich the way you look at the outdoors world and discover things, more and more every time! :)
Thanks to Christian Talla, who edits the posters (and the whole magazine) so lovingly, and to Stephan Averbeck from Niedersächsische Landesforsten, whose expert advice always helps a lot, for this great cooperation!
Furthermore, I am happy that Niedersächische Landesforsten encourages me to freely use the graphics, so there will be another Poster soon – in my very own layout, going well together with my leaves, tracks and birds posters!
