About The Miniature Zoo & Christopher Nelson

My two main goals from the very beginning of this project were simple:
• Do something in life I enjoy, about a subject that genuinely fascinates me & helps me learn.
• Help raise awareness for animals, specifically those endangered and struggling in conservation, setting a task for myself to help raise money for local charities and those that benefit critically endangered animals all around the world.

So far with selling cards, paintings, having auctions etc - I've managed to raise approximately £300+ for various animal based charities, local and around the globe.

My goal is to create a book or a 'Miniature Zoo' based on wonderful and weird creatures, both encouraging people with a creative flair to pick up a pencil or a paintbrush and start creating - and those of us wanting to learn and educate ourselves about the fascinating things inhabiting the same planet as us.

The more we teach ourselves and learn about who and what we share our space with, I truly believe, the brighter our future as planet Earth.

Thank you so much for visiting this page, have a wonderful day & be kind to one another!

Hopefully I shall make you proud.

E is for European Rabbit
$35 or more per month
• I have a lot of paintings that have never been completed or finished, or went horribly wrong. I'll send you an original each month (but honestly, do not expect it to be something good) and I'll annotate it with ideas and thoughts - where it went wrong etc, it'll be a good insight into the Zoo & also my mind if you're into that kind of thing...

Each month I'll send you out a Miniature Zoo print of your choice, adapted with extra little painted details in a card mount, at a cheaper price than on the official website.

It's limited to only 5 people though... (he says, optimistically thinking that 5 people would ever sign up for this).

• A handwritten letter update about the Miniature Zoo and up-and-coming projects.
• A Polaroid picture (see previous tiers for more information)

...Have Your Cake And Eat It?
$400 or more per month
THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF SUBSCRIPTION BOX MADNESS

Every month you get:
• An original animal painting of your choice, framed up every month. If you have a favourite animal, I'll paint it. If you have a pet, I'll paint it. Maybe you want a cake painting? I guess I can do that too! Let's talk!
• You'll also get an adapted print of your choice in a lovely card mount each month to sweeten the deal.
