So after finishing Wild Ones By Jon Mooallem on the plane ride from Ft. Lauderdale to Cincinnati, I got the idea to do a poster series depicting various conservationists, naturalists, and researchers as saints with a their patron animals. Is this something people would like?
I’ve picked out a few already, but I’d prefer to use individuals from the 19th century, does anyone out there have any suggestions?
Also, I’m aware that Seton may not exactly qualify due to his credentials as a nature faker, but I still like the guy.
The posters would probably look something like the Hornaday sketch in the third image. How’s that?
