How is it possible that I’ve already missed the first twenty-one days of Capture Creatures? According to the project’s site:

Capture Creatures is a year-long project where Becky Dreistadt will create 151 different hand-painted creatures, the same number as the original Pokemon. Each creature will be accompanied by a short encyclopedia entry by myself, Frank Gibson.

They’re also planning a touring gallery show when the project is complete!

I love Becky Dreistadt’s paintings - reminiscent of all the classic golden books - and Frank’s writing is such a great fit for the look. If you don’t know their comic, Tiny Kitten Teeth, go ahead and get acquainted.
