Netherlands-based artist Redmer Hoekstra draws fascinating composite illustrations that merge animals and everyday objects or machines, from a lizard with computer keyboard scales to an owl with books for wings. At times he even brings three or more forms together, as with a whale emerging from a submarine, the entirety of which has the appearance of a banana. Whether you regard the pieces as humorous or slightly disturbing, it’s hard to deny the ingenious way each creature is formed.
