About

Creating and sharing wildlife art changes our perception about wildlife.  

This simple fact has inspired an impressive collective of world-renowned artists to come together and create a fascinating book that highlights and celebrates our world's majestic threatened and endangered creatures.  A beautiful and timely gift for anyone who deeply cares about art and wildlife conservation.    

 For more information about this nonprofit, visit https://www.expeditionart.org.

The In Danger book includes over 100 unique and beautiful pieces created by legendary artists such as Sergio Aragones (Mad Magazine, Groo, more), Aaron Blaise (The Lion King, Brother Bear, more), Iain McCaig (Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy, Outlander, Star Trek, more), David Levy (Guardians of the Galaxy, Tron, more), Terryl Whitlach (Star Wars, Beowulf, Brother Bear, more), Kim Jung Gi (more) and J.A.W. Cooper (more), as well as surprise guests such as UFC/WWE superstar Ronda Rousey (more).

Expedition Art is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, which focuses on using art to raise funds and awareness for nature and wildlife conservation initiatives.  Most of the proceeds from the In Danger book will help fund the crucial work of organizations such as SavingSpecies, who actively work to guarantee the well-being of fascinating animals on the verge of extinction.  

Help us self-publish this book by purchasing a copy for you and someone you love.  Special rewards are available for wildlife artists and art aficionados, including very limited signed prints and artist-kits to inspire you to get out and draw your own wildlife masterpieces. 

Let’s change the world one drawing at a time!

SPECIAL THANKS

Risks and challenges

Our biggest risk is not being able to fund Expedition Art's next big projects. Each project, like the "In Danger" project, takes a tremendous amount of effort and donations. Beyond the incredible art pieces donated by each artist, it took the talents of project managers, accountants, designers, interns, researchers, editors, writers, web developers, musicians, video story tellers and a corporate sponsor to invest their capital and resources to make this book a reality.
