Amid the impressive art portfolio of Ursula Vernon, who specializes in rendering animals using an eclectic array of techniques, is a series of creature portraits that are too charismatic and humorous to pass up. For those wondering, the titles for two of these chromatic images are ‘Judgmental Turtle’ and ‘Goth Sheep.’ Naturally, this led me to take notice of the expressions of each animal and realize just how well the North Carolina-based artist nailed each emotional look.
From the sheep’s complete apathy to the capybara’s condescending glare, Ursula Vernon conveys human expressions down to a tee in these cartoon characters. Mix that with her impressive use of colored pencils and you have a series that tickles your eyes as well as your funny bone.
