Manic Illustrations Animal Paintings

Chances are you have arrived here because you love animals!  On my site you will find fun character animals up to all sorts of antics and more realistic animals along with pet portrait paintings.  I am inspired by nature and love to create animal characters with a hint of humour, and a story to tell. Harvey the Aardvark is a character I created some years ago and has been posted around the world in the form of ACEOs.  In line with storytelling some paintings have mythological content always based around the animal kingdom.    ACEOs,  Animal Prints, Original Paintings, and Pet Portraits are available here for you and that extra special commission is just an email enquiry away!

It is a bit of a climb up to the Manic Illustrators creative hub.

With a coffee requirement from the kitchen the stairs keep me super fit!
