Shawn Nichols is a PNW native and creates mixed media pieces using photographs of Seattle. His desire is to create work that reminds people to find something magical in the ordinary and allows them to see their city in a way that is both familiar, yet foreign.
As a child, my favorite works of fiction always seemed to include monsters, mythical creatures and other outlandish creatures. In this series, I decided to curate a virtual odditorium filled with cryptids from my imagination. I hope you enjoy this series, as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them.
