Josh Keyes inspiration

I'm a HUGE Josh Keyes fan; definitely check out his website; his sketchbook page is a wonder!

His work is,,,,well, George Melrod put it pretty succinctly:

“Few contemporary artists portray animals with the empathy of Josh Keyes. At once meticulous and fantastic, poignant and absurd, Keyes’ carefully crafted drawings and paintings depict animals isolated dramatically in fragments of their natural environment, overrun with shards of man-made artifice and debris. Seemingly lost and stranded in their dreamlike stage sets, they look like characters in some existential drama written by a modern-day environmentalist Samuel Beckett.”
