Jen Bartel's art series showcases her illustrative talent and Asian-inspired style while educating people about the precious animals that are on the endangered species list. The illustrations include psychedelic images of tigers, toucans and orangutans, all animals that fall on the list.

The images are bright and colorful, inspired by the comic books and designs Bartel saw while growing up in South Korea, viewing art that had clean lines and bold colors.

Jen Bartel seeks to spread awareness that animals that used to be plentiful are now falling on the endangered species list. This signals a problem, with hunting and degradation of the environment as contributing factors to decreasing animal populations. Jen Bartel's art serves as a reminder of our collective responsibility to take care of these important creatures.
