The Creature Garden: An Illustrator's Guide to Beautiful Beasts and Fictional Fauna

Author(s): Zanna Goldhawk; Harry Goldhawk


The Creature Garden takes you on a step-by-step expedition through the natural world, teaching you how to draw and paint 50 animals in a whimsical folk-art style. Your guides on this journey are the husband-and-wife illustrator team Harry and Zanna Goldhawk, the founders of Papio Press, who will teach you how to make vibrant paintings of beasts--both real and imagined. Learn to create:

  • MAMMALS, including big cats, wolves, sloths, and red pandas

  • MARINE LIFE, including whales, sea dragons, narwhals, and giant Pacific octopi

  • BIRDS, including peacocks, cranes, owls, and flamingos

  • INSECTS, including butterflies, moths, bumblebees, and damselflies

  • MYTHICAL CREATURES, including mermaids, unicorns, and dragons


Each project takes you through every step of the artistic process, from creating an outline to adding a realistic animal pattern, along with suggestions for materials and helpful techniques. Full of lush warmth and fairy-tale wonder, The Creature Garden is a wonderful addition to the repertoire of both seasoned artists and novices alike.
