“The Benevolent Dragon or Iguana”
Oaxaca, Mexico. March 2013
“Iguanas symbolize and teach the importance of respecting and remembering our dreams, facing our fears, and moving in the underworld. Their power lies in the ability to save itself from danger by leaving a part of itself behind.”

I am so happy to have stumbled across Hilary Sloane and her work. You can’t help but to be drawn in by her collaged gifs.
Based in Melbourne, Sloane’s work ranges from illustrations and animation, to collages and photography.
