Yellow Echo Creeper is one of the unusual wildlife artworks of Allen Douglas. He uses CRYPTID as a term to describe his work. CRYPTID is a term often used for creatures whose existence has been suggested but has not been scientifically documented. It is a term that seemed fitting to describe the world that has taken shape in recent years featuring the independent artwork of ALLEN DOUGLAS, depicting animals in both a familiar and unexpected way.
Allen Douglas often turns to folklore for the concepts of his work and distorts size relationships, environments, or animals themselves to create visions that are truly unique, while at the same time paying homage to animals’ natural physical attributes and behaviors. Allen is an award-winning artist who has created paintings for many notable book publishing, editorial, and gaming clients including Penguin Putnam, Random House, Scholastic, HarperCollins, Macmillan/McGraw-Hill, Disney Hyperion, Bookspan, Wizards of the Coast, Hasbro, the Village Voice, and Realms of Fantasy.
