Creature Conserve - Axolotls in Mexico City

I made this sketch as a present for Bertie in 2018, a portrait of his pet axolotl Ash. Have you heard of an axolotl? I hadn’t. They are a type of Mexican salamander only found living in two lakes in Mexico City (and one of these lakes has now dried up). I have exciting news about a project developing in 2021 engaging more with these small unique creatures, a collaboration with Creature Conserve. More details to come soon.
