Under the Skin

Illustration, print, web design

An interactive print series that raises awareness of some of the world’s most iconic, yet endangered animals.

Working in collaboration with my brother James Harrison, we created a series of limited edition screen prints as a hand-crafted celebration of the animals with a powerful underlying message.

When the lights are turned out the skeleton is exposed – all that remains when a species falls into the darkness of extinction.

The prints are available to buy through the website, with 20% of proceeds going towards specially selected charities dedicated to protecting the existence of each species.

The process

The prints were created from my digital illustrations, transferred onto a screen and hand printed by James.

Phosphorescent ink is used for the final layer, revealed as a glowing image under UV light. When the lights are turned out the skeleton is exposed – all that remains when a species falls into the darkness of extinction.

The website

Bringing together a combination of film footage, photography, iconography and typography, I designed a website to bring Under the Skin to life online and share the project with world.

An online shop has also been setup to purchase the screen prints and link people to the specially selected charities.

The web development for the website was done by close friend and web developer Joe Birkin.
