Illustration print depicting the ecosystem of an oak tree. The illustration demonstrates some of the types of creature typically found inhabiting the different layers.

- First there is the roots, soil and litter zone beneath the tree. Here lives earthworms and woodlice who feed off last years leaves and acorns.

- Next is the trunk layer, which provides shelter for insects such as ants and larvae.

- The leaves and branch area provide pollen and nectar for bees, while moths lay their eggs.

- Finally is the canopy where squirrels gather acorns and small birds such as blue tits hunt the moth larvae.

- 11.7” x 16.5” (A3) on 200gsm fine grain, recycled, heavy weight paper.

- Limited edition, hand signed print created from original ink and brush artwork.

- Print is delivered in a cello bag, packed with mount board in a board backed envelope.

Interior illustration of Rob’s Records, a well-known spot for vinyl hunters in Nottingham.  I’ve spent many hours rifling through the stacks of 2nd hand stock in here, my best discovery (so far) has to be Neurosis’ Souls as Zero for £4.

You can buy this print from my shop, if you like.
