Batty

Bats are one of my favorite animals and for Earth Day in 2017, I created a poster to bring awareness to the importance of bats in our environment. What few people know is that some bats do pollinate a lot of the fruit and nut trees that bees don’t. Bananas, avocados, mangoes, figs, peaches, cashews and guava are all crops impacted by endangered bat species.

I rendered all these fruits in soft pastels and then digitally arranged them into the form of a bat, the excess fruit that is not connected to the bat being rotted away.
