Articulating human nature through the interjection of animal interactions, these illustrations by Nader Sharaf capture the intricacies of human socialization. Composed of seemingly unrelated individuals, these portraits present audiences with a wide range of characters and actions which build upon an escalating narrative.

A particularly evocative image involves a group of characters, each one a seemingly self-contained entity -- no one appears to be interacting with each other. What's particularly fascinating is that among this diverse roster is a zebra. The zebra does not appear to be any more out of place than the man with the binoculars or the individual with a paper bag over its head. The drawing alludes to the incredible amount of diversity within a group of people and the tendency to remain self enclosed and contained rather than hospitable and interactive.
