Carnivores

'Carnivores' is inspired by the colour of the year, Classic Blue. Illustrating carnivorous animals and plants, the nature of the subject matter contrasts with the cool colour. Blood comes to our mind whenever we think about meat-eating organisms, relating to warm colours and heightens the sense of danger. In fact, many of these carnivores, especially wolves, foxes, and snakes, are over-represented and misrepresented as 'the evil one' in nursery rhymes and children's books. They are born to prey on herbivores and are doing their part to balance the food chain. Therefore, Jessie created this digital portrait to challenge the portrayal of carnivores versus herbivores in fictional stories.
