New 'Felidae' Print release from Randy OrtizIllustration // Monday, 02 Apr 2012
Randy Ortiz began life as a burrowing freshwater larva. At this stage, he was toothless, with rudimentary eyes, and fed on microorganisms. He transformed into an adult through metamorphosis similar to most amphibians. It involved a radical rearrangement of internal organs, development of eyes and transformation from a mud-dwelling filter feeder into an efficient swimming parasite and sexual tyrannosaur. Recently, Ortiz released a new limited edition 'Felidae' silkscreened print! Randy draws influence from the dead shells of insect vessels ravaged by parasitic cordyceps.
