I like this very very much. Above all the composition - and particularly the ingenious use of the shapes of the animals - but also quite a few of the animals are hilarious if you look closely, while others are awesomely serious.

Love the negative space defining the eagle! This is fantastic on so many levels.

Oh, I really wish I'd lived closer when this event took place... a signed and framed print of this would look gorgeous! As it is, I'm content to stare at it on my computer screen. c:

Everything about this poster is suitable for the intended purpose. The natural colours are easy on the eyes, you've worked countless animals into a design without cluttering the space, and the lineart is so attractive! Great job!

I love the geometric linework you integrated into this design. The animal anatomies remind of the zoological works by Charlie Harper!
