Today I am going to introduce my new designs, sold in my zazzle shop featuring tapirs. Before that, however, I would like to write some words about those gorgeous animals. Tapirs are herbivorous mammals with a cool and cute prehensile snout which they use to grab the plants they are eating. They are in my opinion the perfect animals to draw, especially the Malayan tapir (Tapirus indicus) with its eye-catching markings in black and white. This pattern is for camouflage. Young tapirs have brown hair with white stripes and spots, allowing for an even better camouflage. The Malayan tapir is native to Asia while the other species inhabit the jungles and forests of South and Central America. Unfortunately nowadays they are in danger of extinction or vulnerable. Please save the tapirs!
My tapir designs feature a tapir completely in black and white with a tuxedo indicated at his neck region and a tapir girl wearing a pink ballet costume with a tutu and ballet shoes.
For decorating your home I have designed these two unique throw pillows
As always I also designed mugs, which make the perfect gifts. The first one features the ballerina and the text “Live your Dream” with a light blue background color. If a tapir can be a “Prima Ballerina”, you can also live your dream…
The other one is with the tapir couple looking at each other. This time I used a grey background color. This mug is a really cute gift for your boy-friend, girl-friend, husband or wife.
For the other designs with tapirs check out my collection including t-shirts for him and her and a cute card on zazzle
