The theme selected for week thirty three of Operation Graphite will be: Animal Hybrid.

A thing of immortal make, not human, lion-fronted and snake behind, a goat in the middle, and snorting out the breath of the terrible flame of bright fire. Daughter of Typon and Echidna, Chimera ravaged Lycia until Bellerphon mounted the winged stallion Pegasus and attacked her from above. 

Hybrid animals are plentiful in various ancient mythologies, from the Egyptian Ammit and Gryphon, to the Greek Hippocamp and the Chinese Qilin. Even the modern day taxidermic parody, the Jackalope, is an example of an animal hybrid. This week we can either create our own hybrid animal, or delve in to the rich mythological catalog for inspiration. The creature may be cute or monstrous, but it must be all animal, no human DNA allowed.

Please submit a drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media of a Hybrid Animal

All art work is due on Thursday 9.20.12. Submissions will be published the following Friday 9.21.12.
