One of the illustrations I made for the Goranski bestiarij (Goran Bestiary) publication, for Javna ustanova "Priroda" as part of their Centar Velike Zvijeri (Large Carnivores) project. The task was to create illustrations accompanying various short stories that were collected from across Gorski Kotar, detailing the encounters people had with large carnivores in the area. The stories are often humorous and are very interesting accounts of local lived experiences.
Here, a person marking trees for logging stumbles on a bear peacefully sleeping in the tree hollow.
