Face to Face

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 ranger suddenly realizes a bear has been sitting next to him for a while without him noticing it at all.
