Here is Wesley’s brilliant contributions to In Danger:
“I chose the Sumatran tiger because I’ve long been fascinated by tigers and other big cats. They’re such majestic animals and the Sumatran tiger in particular has always interested me, with its patterns and distinctly longer hair around the cheeks and head. My roots are in traditional drawing and I felt like I wanted to represent this animal through the lines and patterning in the way I work with graphite; moving it around on paper to make it appear alive and conscious.” - Wesley Burt
