I clicked Australian Animals, because there are none out there... but I would seriously buy all four of them.

Are they going to be e-book or an actual physical book?

They'll be a self-published series through Lulu - so first an actual physical book and then - once I work it out - maybe an e-book. But I'd prefer a physical book, since they'd be art/information books, to give people an opportunity to own a book of the totem art, who can't afford an original. :)

In the meantime, I have over 76 Australian totem animals along with artwork represented on my website: www.wildspeak.com :)

Have you ever done any plant totem?:) hmm, an orchid would be wonderful! :nod:
Why not Australian orchids, as Australia has some of the coolest orchids! :love:
If you need some inspiration take a look in my group gallery, it's linked in my signature btw. There are some wonderful species in there! :nod:

Anyway, I think you should do Endangered, Asian or Australian animals!

We do have some of the most wonderful orchids. I enjoy taking photos of them, though my favourite is the relatively common donkey orchid (Diuris magnifica). I haven't illustrated them as totems, mostly becuase of commercial reasons (i.e. plant illustrations rarely sell compared to animal illustrations), but maybe I could do a plant totem book down the track. :)

well, I would buy them! :nod: But I do understand your point of view, sadly people don't relate as much with plants as they do with animals. They are often forgotten...

Diuris magnifica certainly is a beautiful plant! :love:

I can't decide! Of this list, probably Endangered Animals – but a bird-specific book would also be awesome!
