These adorable animal art prints are by Canadian illustrator Laura Graves. I really appreciate the cute but realistic style in which she draws all her animals. Also, I like how each of the drawings combines a traditional-looking illustration approach for the main nature subjects with a few flourishes and effects which look more modern and geometric.
I am obsessed with bunny rabbits, so I love that they are a recurring theme in her illustrations. Spring, Fox and Rabbit, and Cozy Chipmunk — the last of which features a chipmunk and a rabbit cuddling in a knit winter hat — all feature rabbits.
Some of her animal art prints are portraits of woodland creatures with slightly anthropomorphic qualities, including Zissou the Bear (wearing a hat), Fox (wearing a scarf), and Leopard Changing His Spots (smoking a pipe). Others are vignette style pictures, such as St. Peters-burg, which shows one of that city’s landmark churches on a geometric iceberg, surrounded by a few oceanic animals like whales and narwhals. Have Love, Will Travel features a hot air balloon with interesting patterns. Birdhouse Revisited is a peacock surrounded by a house — Alice-in-Wonderland style, with its head protruding from the doorway and its colourful feathers sticking out of the chimney. Each picture has a fantastic sense of character.
