Richard Field, or Fieldinspired, has always been fascinated with the beauty of the world around him.

As a skateboarder growing up in London, Richard listened to 90s hip hop and collected graffiti art, but now creates vivid and infinitely detailed illustrations of exotic animals using Adobe Illustrator.

In the latest collection, Rich digitally built hundreds of layers for each print - beginning from the centre of each animal’s face, where he likes to illustrate the most detail.

Each piece has a minimum of 80 separate layers of patterns and half tones, some as many as 220, taking him around a week to complete.

We spoke to Richard about the process of creating each artwork, the time and the patience it requires, but why he loves it.
