Frances Garcia Orellana
This project is a work and progress; this is the prototype. This is a publication I am working on titled "Wildlife of Chicago: Stickers". So many people are oblivious to the wildlife that live around us, who have been here long before us. I want to bring these creatures to light in a fun way with my sticker book. There will also be a field guide that will go along with this sticker books as a separate publication. The sticker book is pocket sized, just like an ideal field guide.
