I’ve been shortlisted in the World Illustration Awards for my ongoing online GIF project. This Is The Coolest Place is in the Professional | Self Initiated Work category.

I started this project in 2015 as a website to house a series of GIFs of animals from cool habitats doing stereotypically ‘cool’ things. I’m adding to this GIF gang so stay posted for updates.

What’s your feelings on otters? Love them, hate them, ambivalent? Before this year I never really gave them much thought. However when I was researching different animals to include in a children’s picture book, I discovered just how amazing otters are.

They’re highly intelligent with the ability to create and use tools just like monkeys and apes. They also exhibit human behaviour, such as holding hands. They often do this when they’re resting in water so they don’t drift apart.

Enjoy these few pictures and gifs and then check out The Daily Otter for all your otter needs.

These are the two drawings of otters I used in my book. He was meant to be playing ball, but he hit it too hard with his tail. Cheeky thing.
