A friend asked me to draw a chameleon and so this is what I came up with. I love their eyes in particular, and their weird little hands, and of course, their cool tails.

The original artwork measures 19 × 25″ and is rendered with art pens and colored pencils on green pastel paper.

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.
