Zine: Deep Sea Freak

It is finally time for another zine-update, this time with the theme Deep Sea Freak. This creation combines the head of Atopodentatusunicus with the plough-nose of chimaeras, the wolffish’s teeth, the nautilus’ eyes, the segments of a great isopod and the body of a humpback whale.

The initial idea was to create a deep sea mermaid of some sort or maybe make a realistic depiction of a monster from a renaissance map. However, the more research I did from photos, etchings and illustrations, the more I enjoyed bizarre anatomical details. I therefore decided to scrap my earlier ideas and make a new beast that lurks deep down in the ocean.
