In a deep dark forest the sun is setting and night is coming. With creaks and cracks and thuds and thumps something big is surely afoot. The darkness brings the "Night Animal" but what could it possibly be? This is a re-illustrated children’s book originally written and illustrated by Gianna Marino. I re-illustrated this book and added and sense of mystery, depth, and darkness. I wanted this version of the book to be different and leave the reader wondering what the strange animals could possibility be until they are revealed in the end. I was inspired by the beautiful colors of the night and how the sky changes so much in just a few hours, transforming a forest into a place of unknown sounds and animals left to be discovered in the coming pages.
