The Book of Dead Things

Designs based on sketches of deceased animals I saw in various rural places in the UK.

My sketchbook has started with dead pregnant sheep and newborn lambs I stumbled upon during spring lambing period. 

I then added a number of roadkill wild animals sketches.

Some of the drawings are created right on the spot and some — from photographs.


I used watercolour pencils & gouache for this project.

I later created print and fabric designs based on the original sketches.
