Deconstructed Animal Drawings by Jaume Montserrat


Barcelona-based illustrator Jaume Montserrat creates drawings of animals who seem unraveled like a piece of ribbon or with holes where their spots or stripes should be. The artist was inspired while napping on a flight from South America to Spain. He dreamed of a Noah's Ark island where he lived with a group of empty animals, hence the name of the series Emptyland. His surreal images from his dream feature animals that sometimes might be at odds with each other while in the wild living together peacefully, some intertwined or even inside of one another.
