EHHH This is at the Oregon Zoo! So cutteeeeee.
Spanish illustrator Fernando Vincente gave a whole new meaning to the phrase, ‘seeing the world with a different eye’ by painting various images over existing cartographs and maps. He is creating animals, humans and objects out of the shape of different countries on the map. ‘When I paint I like to do on printed materials, is a way to unite my passion for topics such as anatomy, mechanics and my hobby for collecting posters, maps, atlas geographic and geographical anatomy with my work’, he states. Vincente collected his unusual canvases on flea markets in Madrid (called ‘Rastro’), in shops and antique fairs. With his series he aims to create something new and unexpected out of the common shapes.

Painted animals: discuss.
Drawing on our horses with chalk was part of Equine Therapy at Remuda. Though the color is beautiful & the picture is lovely, I don’t know enough about it to be sure how I feel about painting on animals. Five years ago, Banksy got into a little trouble for painting an elephant because there was some controversy over the safety, so it makes me question whether or not it’s a good idea.Source: Flickr / photocatcher
