Artist's description:

Probably the sunniest hippo you'll ever find. Part of my Animal Kingdom series. This image was developed in a step by step process. First Stage: Find a good photo (In this case I had a picture of my head in the gaping jaws of a hippo - it was only at a museum, I'm not that brave). Second Stage: Draw the image in pencil; Stage 3: Pick out key features and simplify; Stage 4: Cut out Stencil; Stage 5: Pick a background colour and a stencil colour ----> Graffiti time!; Stage 6: Illustrate with a special dimensional paste from Marabu... its a bit like doing intricate Indian Henna patterns on canvas.

Materials used:

Spray paint and relief Paste

A Very Hungry Hippo - Spray Paint & Illustrated with dimensional paste adding great texture to the canvas (2014)
