Hey there, amazing and persevering followers!
I’m super excited to finally unveil my whole new creation!
Think of it like following a TV series, each photomontage capturing a unique moment in the adventure of characters like a wise-cracking shoebill, a jaded raccoon, or a meerkat with more curiosity than sense. An artistic sitcom where the wild meets the wacky side of our human emotions. My love for animals and amusement at the human condition come together in these singular stories, each a snapshot of life’s quirky moments, connecting to tell the stories of unique, lovable, and less-lovable characters.
As an unapologetic animal lover and an explorer of the human emotional jungle, this project is my way of saying, “Hey, we’re all a little wild inside!”
I will strictly follow these guidelines for this project: no use of AI, only real pictures, and no Photoshop to change the animals’ expressions. All the animal faces are their real faces and natural expressions. In celebrating animals and nature, this series also honors the talented photographers who share my passion. I am committed to crediting these artists for any recognizable part of my photomontages. It might happen that I don’t tag a photographer’s account but only a pen name. In that case, the image I purchased didn’t lead to any website or profile but to an untraceable pen name. And yes, I buy every single picture because every artist deserves to be paid for their work.
If you’re up for a laugh, deep thoughts, and possibly questioning why raccoons seem to understand us better than we do, join me on this wild ride!
Head to @billandleon for a fresh and humorous take on our furry and feathered friends’ secret lives. Let’s dive into their world, find ways and reasons to approach life with a smile, and maybe learn a bit about ourselves along the way! For the first “episode”, meet Harvey and Bernard 🤗
With love, laughter, and a hint of wild,
Your Tall N Curly 🦒💕
