Announcing the original “Chupacabra in a Can”! This poseable Chupacabra skeleton is finally completed and up for sale! You can find it in our Etsy store.
I love this eyes.
I spotted a midland painted turtle this summer, and I’m glad I got to see one up close. I only picked it up because it was heading out of the park towards a busy road, and I released it into the pond in the background. I am holding it gingerly because it fought me the whole way- look at those claws!
Just a quick post with all the pictures of Giger from my phone. I acquired Giger this past June. He’s a rescued snake, one and a half years old, named after the Swiss artist H. R. Giger.
I plan to upload more pictures taken with my DSLR in the near future. This is going to be a blog entirely dedicated to Giger and possibly some reblogged photos of other cool reptiles that I find on Tumblr.
She’s hard to photograph… If I take her out she lunges at me and falls off everything!
My name is Wesley James Lock I’m an artist and an aspiring biologist living on the west coast of Florida. For as long as I can remember I have loved two things, art, and animals. I started studying both from a very young age and my dream has always been to make a career out of it. Unfortunately I dropped out of school for personal and health reasons and recently had to quit my job as well. I had been working construction for the last couple years but kept getting injured and just can’t do it anymore.
I can still make art, and want to bring back to life my dream of making it as a wildlife illustrator. I’d love to start selling prints and doing commissions again to bring myself back into it.
If you like my work and are interested in buying or commissioning a piece please send me a message, or if you would be kind enough to share this I’d greatly appreciate it.
I work in a wide range of budgets and always enjoy a challenge. Thank you for taking the time to read this, be well <3
Alright guys I give up. I’m gonna go crawl into a hole and cease to exist, Wes is better than me at all things. Seriously, he’s basically the new Steven Irwin and at the same time a stupendous artist. If you are following me and you aren’t following him, your priorities are in the wrong place.
I love it when art and science come together in the amazing people on tumblr.
(Side note: totally sending this link to all my family with the not so subtle suggestion that they get me some wildlife art for my birthday)
