These beasts are not what they seem.
Filipino ilustrator Kerby Rosanes' Geometric Beasts series imagines Earth's most majestic creatures breaking out from polygonal crystal chrysalises with a satisifying crackle. Whether you interpret it as a rise against humanity's tendancy to trap and impress members of the animal kingdom, or a fantastical scenario a lá the ressurrection of the stone creatures in C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, it's a formula that works. Each animal, from a ram, to a lion, to a T-Rex, brings more joy from Geometric Beasts' simple conceit.
Geometric Beasts is part of Rosanes' larger effort to move away from his old job as a graphic designer, and focus on his personal art practice. Check out more of his work in the Instagrams below.
