About the Project

The ZooTrophy Animal-a-Day project began on October 15th, 2013 as illustrator Angela "LemurKat" Oliver began working her way, systematically but selectively, through the alphabet and presenting, via social media, an illustrated animal to the world. Daily.

All pieces are drawn as 2.5 x 3.5 inch collectible cards, using a combination of polychromos and prismacolor pencils, along with other art materials. Many are still available for purchase ($10) or trade, so drop her an email if anything captures your eye or if there is an animal you wish to request.

It is predicted this project will take her at least two years to complete - with approximately 36 animals being drawn for each letter. She has also used the images to create a collectible hardback encyclopedia series, playing cards and a desk calendar, as well as the ZooTrophy collectible trading card game.

Creature Feature #455: Marbled Cat

The Marbled Cat can be found in the forests of South and Southeast Asia. Here she hunts in the canopy for prey: birds, rodents and reptiles. Secretive and solitary, little is known about her habits in the wild. Despite her small size - about that of a house cat - she does bear some characteristics normally found in the big cats with her enlarged canines and broad feet.
