alphanimals by classic-syndrome alphanimals by classic-syndrome
takin some classes to work on my portfolio.... this is for a typography class. : )

i will paint these little beasties eventually.

edit: thanks so much for the dd!

but guys... the tortoise is not a pokemon. it's a play on the turtle/tortoise creation myth, and the imagery was cliche way before pokemon existed if you ask me.

Sea urchins are animals. The one with the flower is a yellow jacket.

They're echinoderms and are closely related to sand dollars and star fish. : )

I thought a sand dollar was like a cuttlefish thingy... you know one of those wierd stones that's called a "fish" but it's not a fish.

It took me a while to realize that the letters corresponded with the animals you'd used... lol, probably a pretty good sign that I need to go to bed soon!

I'm curious to know what the fish are, though. c:

Can't wait to see this coloured!

"F" is a fox on a grape vine of sorts
"O" is an Otter
"X" might be x-ray tetras judging by the fins
"Y" has me stumped, too xD

Eeey spelt foxy by accident, woohoo.~

what's funny is there are species of vespid that prey primarily on other species of vespids.
