Hybrid, Ink, pen, acrylic and pencil

Ella says: By mimicking the drawing styles used in natural history collections for recording specimens I have developed a series hybrid mythical creatures in keeping with the idea of Wunderkammer.
 
The inspiration for my work is the link between animals and humans. Why haven’t we evolved with the head of a buffalo or the horns of a bull? I have explored anatomy and emotion when merging animal elements with the human body.
