Canadian animals
« on: June 18, 2013, 12:04:38 PM »
These can now be bought in PDF format (at least the site states so, 2010 info - look down there's a order form in PDF). The series started as an entry to a souvenir design competition and the artist is Lawrie Macintosh. These have been folded from vinyl to copper and silver. I like the looks of them.





Here's the web address: http://www.canadiandesignresource.ca/officialgallery/symbols/canadian-animal-series-paper/ or google for more info.

Bison, Moose, Walrus and the two Bears.
What an interesting set of paper models!

$6 a piece seems a little steep to me (for a PDF)?
I'd say a preprinted Animal for that price would be more reasonable,
but this is a fairly unique item nonetheless.

Over at Pilpat's Agence Eureka site on June 10th, they had some zoo animals that were originally ad pieces.  Among the animals are a polar bear, a brown bear, a black bear and maybe an elk/caribou deer-like creature.

Not specifically Canadian models...but definitely animals found in Canada!
Three different types of Bear and (I agree) it looks like a Caribou or Reindeer (same thing).
