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.

#762: Titmouse

The Tufted Titmouse is a diminutive songbird found in the eastern United States. He is common in both the urban environment and deciduous woodlands. While he mainly eats insects, he also forages for seed, nuts and berries, and the popularity of bird feeders in gardens is helping him to spread north. curious by nature, he is known to peek through windows to investigate what's behind. Nests are build in natural tree cavities, lined with soft materials - including fur plucked directly from dogs.
