The blog of Angela "LemurKat" Oliver: Author, illustrator; reader, dreamer.
The ZooTrophy Animal-a-Day project began on October 15th, 2013 as illustrator Angela “LemurKat” Oliver began working her way, systematically but selectively, through the alphabet and presenting, via social media, an illustrated animal to the world. Daily.
All pieces are drawn as 2.5 x 3.5 inch collectible cards, using a combination of polychromos and prismacolor pencils, along with other art materials. Many are still available for purchase ($10) or trade, so drop her an email if anything captures your eye or if there is an animal you wish to request.
The project finally concluded on August 2nd, 2016 with over 886 animals being drawn – an average of 34 animals per letter. She has also used the images to create a collectible hardback encyclopedia series, playing cards and a desk calendar, as well as the ZooTrophy collectible trading card game.
