Evolution is a tricky thing. It's hard to depict since it moves very slowly and it's really better seen and appreciated after the fact. But that hasn't stopped Kevin Cornell who sees the future through his own unique Victorian lens and imagines a day when certain people and certain animals have merged. He call the combinations "Peoplemals" and he created a set of them for a small show in Philadelphia. We fell in love with them (as we usually do with with all of Kevin's illustrations) right from the start and we assembled a limited-edition print set featuring four species.

Penghim, Manther, Ladger and Eagirl are each depicted on their own 6" x 9" card. Dan Barron of Flywheel Letterpress took on the awesome responsibility of striking these prints into Classic Crest 130# Natural White stock and did an amazing job. The four prints are stamped with a Cornell-designed seal of authenticity on the reverse, and tied together with soutache, surrounded by velvet and packed into a jet-black, super-strong archival photo-print box.
