They prefer to hide during the day and there is no better way than to hang out in dark places, high up and upside down. At night when their enemies are asleep, they emerge into the darkness using their built in sonar system. Their thin wings are as sensitive as human skin and these delicate membranes sense vibrations that bounce off obstacles. They love insects, sometimes fruit and very rarely even blood. But don't worry, they won't ever grow large enough to sport a black cape...

Manymals are a unique family of jewelry comprised of creatures that hang by nature. This first line is called "Wild Ones"and represents wild animals from around the world. The original forms are hand sculpted by Markus Diebel; they are then cast in different materials, hand polished and packaged in San Francisco. The special packaging is made from 100% recycled paper pulp and each package features a story about the manymal inside. At a presentation of Wild Aid, Markus met Bo Derek, who encouraged him to support her cause. With part of the proceeds going to WildAid, your purchase actually helps the animals whose beauty it captures.

‘A great deal of my creative energy is focused on developing a visual language that uses elements of both realism and abstraction to describe a subject. ‘Our Ghosts Are Hungry, How About You?’ is a series of narrative paintings on childhood. Visually, these images explore the dissonance that arises when realism is paired with the abbreviation and exaggeration of form.’ - Matthew Robertson
Matthew Robertson was born and raised in San Francisco and graduated from the Academy of Art University in 2012 with a BFA in illustration. He currently lives and works in Berkeley, California. Robertson’s technical oil paintings are simultaneously chaotic and controlled as he masterfully weaves the two components into one canvas to intuitively explore the tenuous balance between real and abstract forms. The new series vibrates with a sense of innocence described by bold colors, geometric forms, and spontaneous lines which merge together harmoniously with an expert sense of realism, to create a body of work that is both nostalgic and contemporary.
