NeonMob Series: Animalia Afoot

Animalia Afoot is now available to collect as a NeonMob Series!

On NeonMob, a worldwide network of creators and designers creates original trading cards for everyone to discover and enjoy. Open packs and trade to complete series, earn badges, and collect limited-edition cards. The joy and nostalgia of collecting is captured in this social marketplace that never runs out of beautiful and inventive collectibles.

The series contains 15 cards depicting various species of wildlife in colored pencil in ink. Each card is as rare as the animal it depicts, matching the animal’s IUCN Red List of Threatened Species evaluation.

Earth is home to over 8 million animal species, yet each creature has its own unique impression. Many of these signatures are common sights, but some are rarer finds, fleeting beauties struggling to survive. With such diverse artistry to behold, we must learn to appreciate each individual species and treasure its special addition to this world. Every animal’s print reveals an identity, shares a heritage, and helps to paint the canvas of our planet. Each mark is a part of our story.

Examples



Supply List


REQUIRED

Black paper and oil pastels are required. 8.5×11 inch Black cardstock is recommended. Required oil pastel colors include white, black, and a light and dark shade of at least one color; for example light blue and dark blue.

 

OPTIONAL

Circles will be drawn and having a circle template or bow compass will make this task easier. Something round can also be used in place of these tools, such as a round can lid, the bottom of a round jar, etc. A pencil is suggested for light sketching, but sketching can be done with an oil pastel, if desired. Lead refills, pencil sharpeners, and erasers are optional, but most likely not needed.
