The 'Wild Animals' book brings a whole new level of adorableness to baby animals. It features amazing watercolor paintings that look childlike at first, but are actually much more detailed and skilled than instantly discerned.

Rop van Mierlo's self-published 'Wild Animals' is both "a wild book for civilized people [and] a sophisticated book for wild people," as he puts it. Ironically, he had the tip of his ear bitten off by a dog. Thank goodness he still put together 'Wild Animals.' Stats for Blurry Beast Art Trending: Older & Warm
