Medium: This is a print reproduction of a hand illustrated, mixed media Jay Original. Mixed media: Charcoal and ink on acrylic paint.
Inspiration behind the work: Loss of brush land for fuel like charcoal is a huge problem for mega fauna, such as elephants, rhinos, and big cats that need a large expanse of land for survival. The need for charcoal is the most pronounced, as over 90% of Tanzanian households live off-grid with no access to renewable forms of energy, let alone gas or electricity.
All of Jay's prints run the same edition size and cost the same. If sold at higher value, the entire sum of additional profits need to be directed to conservation.
All prints are produced using dispersion inks on the highest quality archival paper or canvas.
