Texas Notebook Project

The Texas Notebook Project contains a set of over 300 drawings and paintings of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, crustaceans, corals, molluscs, insects and viruses found in the state. These creatures include animals that we see as wildlife, livestock, pets, feral beasts and pests. Some are common, and some are rare. They all are part of the web of life with which we share the planet.
