Still the best wildlife photograph.
‘A four man anti-poaching team permanently guards a Northern White Rhino on Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, 13 July 2011. The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is an important “not-for-profit” wildlife conservancy in the Laikipia District of Kenya and the largest sanctuary for black rhinos in East Africa. It is also the home of 4 of the world’s remaining 8 Northern White Rhino, the worlds most endangered animal. There has been an increase in poaching incidents on Ol Pejeta recently, in line with a massive worldwide increase in rhino poaching linked to the rise in the Asian middle class. Anti-poaching teams provide close protection to the rhino, with 24 hour observation over all rhino on Ol Pejeta and 24 hour armed guard protection over the 4 Northern White Rhino who are kept in their own Boma area. The team have developed extraordinary relationships with these Rhino, leaning on them, scratching them and displaying tremendous affection towards these most endangered of animals. Each of the men in these teams feels a genuine vocation towards the protection of these animals, something the rhino seem to sense, and this emerges on a daily basis as the men walk with the rhino through their day.’

Hi I just wanted to drop by and mention that I will be spending most of this week getting the last details finished so I can finally send the second volume to print! I’ve finally overcome the hurdles keeping me from doing so so I’m getting my ducks in order this week, which means the next comic might be a little while. In the meantime, here’s a work-in-progress of Book 2’s cover art! I’m keeping with the theme of evoking historic artists in my own style so I thought this one would be fun to share.
Thanks for your patience!
