Juan Cabana - A study in Cryptozoology

Featured Artist - Juan Cabana

Cryptozoology (from Greek κρυπτός, kriptos, "hidden" + zoology; literally, "study of hidden animals") refers to the search for animals which are considered to be legendary or otherwise nonexistent by mainstream biology.

What I like most about Juan's work is how he strives for realism. His work truly does look like something that has possibly been unearthed after years spent in decay.
His art has also been featured in the infamous Weekly World News, which is very cool in my book.

Head over to and check out the huge gallery of odd works by Juan!
