This is the first beast.
The Exquisite Beast is a project that Yuko Ota and myself, Evan Dahm, are starting. Beginning with this creature drawn by me, we will take turns drawing future creatures, each one representing a visible step in a theoretical evolutionary process. We’ll play with the aesthetic of living things and the process of natural selection, and may or may not end up with a biologically plausible series of beasts.
In the future, Yuko’s monsters will go up on every Friday, and mine will go up on every Tuesday. Thanks for looking!
