Yong Ho Ji's rubber scrap menagerie

Art by Yong Ho Ji, a Korean artist who uses old recycled tire scraps to create her amazing menagerie.  Being on a ferocious beast kick in my own art, I'm obviously intrigued and fascinated by her work. "He uses rubber tires as his medium because he thinks of the material as a mutation, something that comes from nature but ends up looking entirely different from it’s original form. He also likes the material because it’s malleable and a close approximation to skin and muscles." Here's more images and a few interviews with the artist.
