in the 7 months I’ve spent working for the incredible Jeremy Johnson of Meddling With Nature I’ve finally come to complete my first piece of taxidermy. 

It was sad enough to have come across him lying there on the side of the road covering his face and knowing thats how he died, but after he was processed and I cleaned his skull I found that his two front teeth were chipped and his jawbone broken. He wasn’t just hit by a car. He wasn’t just roadkill. He was a living thing that was killed by someone and his body lay unnoticed on the side of the road. This Raccoon represents all the reasons why I began looking at roadkill in the first place and why today this subject still inspires me continue to do taxidermy.
