Have you seen Adele Morse‘s work? She’s a Welsh artist and taxidermist who lives in London, and she has a very unique take on the art of taxidermy.

Morse started studying taxidermy in 2005 and decided to become a full-time artist in 2012.

Take a look at her work, it’s pretty weird, wild, wacky, and fun!

1. Look at that shrew.

2. I kind of want one of these.

🔥EAT TRASH OR DIE TRYIN🔥 BIG RACC in NY and on the set of his new video 'all bad dogs go to Heaven'. . If you can think of any more song title puns of 90s rap Raccoon songs then please feel free to make us all cringe in the comments. . . I designed and got the camo for his jacket specially printed in Germany then made a pattern and tailored/sewed up his jacket and added poppers and leather shoulders, he also has 3 watches in 3 time zones, 2 chains including his death row records piece he got when he signed his deal, handmade mini bandanna, hand painted sunglasses, gold rings, trap phone that he can actually make calls on and finally… a toothpick as it sooths his anxiety since his friend Big dog died. As always zero photoshop and no filters just beautiful Big Racc. Tallest boy I ever did and he had a lot of holes in his face and damage to his eye that I patched but I think he came out pretty pretty pretty pretty good. . . . #bigracc #raccoon #animals #taxidermy #cute #tough #deadly #rapper #sculpture #newyork #lowbrow #ukartist #meme #funny #tiktok #funnyvideos #notoriousbig #deathrowrecords

NAME SUGGESTIONS TIME🎉 Come on then… you always nail this… SO this foxy guy is on his way to the other side of world but he doesn't have a name yet….Someone who's name begins with a J asked me to make this as a gift for one of you. So you don't know it yet but one of you has already adopted him. Which I am too excited about and am struggling not to give too many clues. So for now give me your BEST name suggestions please ❤ IF your name gets picked I will send you a postcard set. Also on a side note this is the exact face I make when I try to look normal in a photo. Every time. I think I'm subconsciously making my spirit animals. . . . #stonedfox #friends #bff #sloth #pals #surprise #mysterious #oooooh #aaaaaah #taxidermy #meme #sculpture #lowbrow #furry #fluffy #anthropomorphic #cute #creepycute #britishartists #london #art #ihatechoosinghashtags

I Love these ❤ For sure feel like I'm going to vomit every time I see one of them whilst scrolling with tens of thousands of likes and no tags but I admit …deep down I am amazed my little fella is doing the rounds again. I didn't think I would ever get to see him or any other animal receive so much attention seven years after I made him. I always kicked myself for not joining social media when he first became a meme but now I think it was actually a good decision for the first time. I had thick skin even then but it's really overwhelming. I'm not complaining of course. I know I am lucky with or without being credited but it's a really unique and unusual experience because its like equal parts bad and good. Its like finding out you won a million pound the same day you find out you owe a million. You go through all the emotions at once and at the end of the day you are in the same position….but then happens multiple times over seven years. As long as I can avoid being the crazy fox lady sleeping under the billboard for some new stoned fox theme park that I'm not involved in then I'm good. Thank you for all helping me see stuff. It's overwhleming but it always feels nicer getting sent it by you instead of stumbling on it by mistake ❤ I wonder if grumpy cat sees a psychiatrist 🤔 . .p.s I would happily let them cast him as Tails. . #stonedfox #sonic #sonicthehedgehog #sonicmemes #taxidermy #vomit #whatismylife #sos #thankgodforcamambert

Name suggestions time…. So the holiday may be over but the summer is just starting. Not that It really makes a difference to us as we are in a basement beavering away but….. This Guy is finally going to be leaving me and going to his new home in sunny America as a mascot for toptree . My first mascot. Right now he doesn’t have a name Soooo I figured maybe this was a good time to get some suggestions from you. You always come up with great ideas. So do you’re worst….. I am going to miss him. I admit I play with him a bit everyday. I keep buying him sunglasses. He has like 8 pairs. I have 1 pair🤷🏼‍♀️ I know you’re probably sick of him but these are some (I took 400) from the batch of final photos. The third one is NSFW but if you report me I will send Pierre round.

DAY 24:CUSTOMER FEEDBACK If you have ever adopted a critter or bought something from my shop and would like to leave a review in the comments that would be nice❤️ One of my favourite things is seeing photos of my animals in their new lives all over the world. From fancy rock star headshots to looking terrified next to a John Wayne Gacy Painting and they even help with meal prep. One thing that I am so happy about and grateful for is how the animals become members of the family and not just an object or somethings static on the side or the wall. I admit I was a bit unorganised with this one so here are some photos with some customer feedback. THANK YOU to everyone who trusts me to make you an animal or to send your orders out. I couldn’t do this without you, Sometimes I want to strangle some but I genuinely do love all the feedback from everyone. I screenshot everything to look at when I am stressing out so I appreciate it all even messages from people who haven’t adopted and just send me amazing DMs that always come at the right moment . @JOANNEHAWKER #MARCHMEETTHEMAKER #INDIEROLLERMMTM #taxidermy #oddities #crimemuseum #stonedfox #meme #anthropomorphic #collections #london #animals
