This painting, Animal Map of the World, now available as a signed A2 sized poster print, shows some of the many creatures we share the planet with, in the approximate place you might find them.

The original watercolour painting was a commission for Mini Map Makers for use in a series of children's cartographic textbooks.

Animal map

There are many animal maps of the world out there (this is hardly an original idea), but many of them show hopelessly simplified representations of animals, or are exceptionally detailed. The painting is designed to come somewhere in between. Mini Map Makers, who commissioned it, will use it in school workbooks to teach 4- to 11-year-olds.

In this current age of catastrophic global extinctions, it's important that we humans do all we can right now to fight for and preserve the planet's biodiversity and habitats while we still have species to save. Not just the big 'iconic' species, many of which appear on my Animal Map of the World painting. But the small 'uncute' stuff too; amphibians, insects, crustaceans, molluscs.

Without biodiversity, we ourselves are unlikely to survive. Because we are all in it together.
