Special exhibition in Munich - Molassic Park

For those who live in Munich or close to, there is a very interesting exhibition about nature in Bavaria during the epoche of Miocene and will be open from coming Friday to the beginning of September in Munich Botanical garden. This unique special exhibition is a joint project of Museum Mensch und Natur / BIOTOPIA - Naturkundemuseum Bayern, the Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns (SNSB), the Munich Botanical Garden and the University of Tübingen. I feel privileged to be part of this exhibition having served as an Illustrator along with the well known spanish Paleoartist Mauricio Anton who created three magnificent large scale landscape recontstuctions bringing back to life the animal and plant world of the Freshwater Molasse. Here is the Link to the exhibition, and attached some of my illustrations: https://www.biotopia.net/.../eve.../52-2021-molassic-park-en

Thylacine or Tasmanian tiger -The adventure of a study

..The Thylacine is a legendary species which lived in Australia and Tasmania and seems that is already extinct, since there is no credible evidence that the animal still exist for decades now.

Thylacine painting

Extinct animals and birds are still among my favorites, and the Tasmanian tiger is surely one of them. I did start one more painting depicting the animal and though I was pleased with the background the tiger seemed to be very big for the size, with wrong proportions and facial expression. I decided to remove the tiger and repainted it over the background but much smaller. Surely not my best attempt but I know that I`ll be able to create a much better painting one day.
