Curious unravelling animal illustrations based on a dream

The animal kingdom has a lot to offer an artist; it is a great theme to fill up an empty sketchbook. Illustrator Jaume Montserrat’s series ‘Emptyland’ puts a new spin on traditional realist style sketches by transforming the lovable critters into floating ribbons of detail.

The Barcelona-based artist found inspiration for the drawings during a dream on a flight home. He dreamt that he was on a Noah’s Ark-like island and “there was only one animal from each specimen. All of them were empty, asexual and immortal. They didn’t need to hunt, nor were they scared of being hunted – so there was a perfect symbiosis.” Based on this vision Montserrat created surreal representations of unravelling animals that are often intertwined with one another.
