It’s day 1 of #endangeredweek! 🐨🐻🐼🐯🦁🐺🐝An illustration challenge to illustrate a different endangered animal a day - how could I not join in?! I’m planning on painting each illustration in my favourite medium, gouache, so some illustrations may be more finished than others 😝. Today’s animal is the pangolin which you folks will know is one of my all time favourite animals ever. I’ve chosen to illustrate a Sunda pangolin (also known as the Malaysian or Javan pangolin). Found throughout Southeast Asia they’re critically endangered due to being hunted for their skin, scales and meat.
Are you a pangolin fan? Let me know in the comments!
