“I have dreamed of this book for the past twenty years. A place to share many of the adventures I have been privileged to experience on my journeys around the world. It will introduce you to the creative process that began at age seven and tell the story of how I evolved to be an artist. It will give you an intimate glimpse into the world of the most exotic Beasts we are blessed to share the planet with, and reveal the challenges facing the animals living in these wild places. From journal entries, field sketches, to over 100 finished paintings this book gives you an unparalleled look into the eyes of the BEAST!" - John Banovich
