Project: Mean Bunny Strips every Tuesday
Welcome to this week’s mean bunny strip… It’s a little one, for you to have a little moment pondering over.
Look out for more Bunnies doing un-bunny-like things every Tuesday.
Artist: Ollie Stone
Project: Freak of the week
Another Monday, another week, another freak of the week… where does the time go? This week Ollie Stone introduces his Wrestling Bears.
The friendly fellow above, is one of a series of Bear Wrestlers that Ollie is working on. For the next few weeks we will have the pleasure of meeting a new Bear Wrestler every Monday morning!
“Meet Donny Death, one of several bears to be gracing the pages of creaturemag with his band of fellow bear wrestlers.”
We look forward to seeing how this series develops. Creature wonders how this might work as a series of top trump cards. Bear wrestling top trumps certainly sounds like a winning idea! Check out more wrestling bears next Monday.
We hope you enjoy the show!

For those not aware of their work, The Brothers McCleod are triple Bafta nominated animators, represented by Aardman animations as commercial directors and have directed campaigns for a number of exciting clients.

Aside from their successes in the animation field the Brothers are extraordinarily talented illustrators too. Their eye for detail and intricate technique is perfectly showcased in a recent wall hanging project completed for McKechnies Independent Coffee shop in Stratford-upon-avon. The Brother’s have kindly allowed us to showcase a couple of these wall hangings here on Creaturemag. They really do blow our minds. Here we go:
