United Nations 2012 Endangered Species Stamp Series

I was truly honored to be invited by the United Nations Postal Administration to design the 2012 edition of their ongoing Endangered Species Stamp series. This commemorative edition celebrating the 20th anniversary of the collection became available for sale in April and gathered a lot of attention, including an award for one of the illustrations! The ‘Elephant Eared Chameleon’ illustration was distinguished with the Judges’ Special Award at the ScienceOnline 2012 Art Show.

The press coverage was extensive. The online newspaper P3 published an article, and so did the newspapers Boas Notícias and No Feminino-Negócios. The TV channels SIC and SIC Notícias broadcasted an interview recorded at the Lisbon Zoo about the invitation to the project and its development. The printed and online weekly magazine Visão also interviewed me in the context of an article about Scientific Illustration.
