Eye of the Crocodile III [Print & iPad Case] by 

There is a strange fascination for me in the markings and textures of crocodiles. I think it stems from the fact that they seem so ugly and have such a terrible reputation, yet up close beauty can be found. I couldn’t resist the amazing textures, colours and patterns on this crocodile.

  • Thanks Eva! I’m not sure what it reminds me of, I sort of thought it looked like metal – like when copper oxidizes and turns green!
