First look at Zoetica’s epic project, the Alien Botany series!
First official look at my Alien Botany series, with progress documentation »> Artist’s Notebook: Zoetica Ebb - ANIMAL NEW YORK
"ANIMAL’s feature Artist’s Notebook asks artists to show us their original “idea sketch” next to a finished piece. This week, Dublin-based artist Zoetica Ebb talks about her Alien Botany drawing series inspired by Joris-Karl Huysmans’ 1884 novel, À rebours, and her intensive visual catalog of bizarre plants and insects.”
Zoetica just released a new print you’re going to want haunting your walls this fall.

The Alkonost is, according to Russian mythos and folklore, a creature with the body of a bird but the head of a beautiful woman. It makes sounds that are amazingly beautiful, and those who hear these sounds forget everything they know and want nothing more ever again. (Source.)
A few weeks ago, you voted for your favorite recent piece of art, to help me decide which print to release next. Alkonost won with flying colors. Now, she’s available as an archival giclée, in shades of peach and plum.
