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.

#666: The Beast

The Beast was born in the belly of a volcano, the strongest of a litter of five, after their mother became trapped by a rockfall. He killed and consumed all of his siblings, before an eruption allowed him to escape. Now he roams the lava wasteland in the cool of night, hunting for stray animals or people that venture out after dark. Despite his size - around 6 feet in length, not including his tails - he moves with utter silence and stealth. The last thing his prey will see is the moonlight glinting off the bone-white of his skull and the golden gleam in his eyes.
