Interesting animal, that not many people know about their story and way of life
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
The weasel. They have a historical story-line in my country. They were used for chasing rats from the houses. But, in the same time people were frightened of them, since they were thought to be young ladies who turned into these vengeful animals to hurt other women. This all comes from the basic characteristic about weasels, that even though they are sweet looking animals, they also are bloodthirsty with an amazing strategy and tenaciousness for hunting.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
Number of species of weasels can be found Europe, Asia and both South and North America. The species commonly known as the short-tailed weasel is to be found in my country.
What story does your design tell?
Lots of weasels roam around the city park where I live and I always think about their interesting personality, hiding behind their funny and sweet looks.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
I chose vector illustration, since that is my passion, mixing illustation with graphic design.
