Creating Critters - Draco Snake

Creating Critters - 2020

Draco Snake by John Paul H.W.

“My animal is called a Draco Snake.  It is a reptile that lives in the desert.  It is a carnivore that eats fish from nearby rivers and stream and it eats lizards and is as long as me!  The Draco Snake is gray and green with a clubbed tail that it uses to beat predators.  If it kills the predator with his tail, it will eat the predator too.  It likes to stay very still and if an animal comes up to it it will hit it with its club tail and bite it.  It likes to live under big desert rocks.   The Draco Snake mom will take care of her babies until the babies can take care of themselves.”
“Hello my name is Joshua Martinez.  I am a tattoo artist and have been tattooing since 1995, professionally since 2010.  I enjoy working with all mediums but needle and ink is my favorite.  I enjoy doing art projects like this because it shows me the kids are still creative and using their imaginations.
Working on this project this year was especially fun.  The kids have come up with awesome animals and I had the pleasure of recreating John Paul's Draco Snake.” – Josh Martinez
