Brooklyn–based designer and illustrator Mark McGinnis has created an exclusive collection of framed prints for the Dwell Store. Called the Menagerie Collection, the series captures flora and fauna in soft, yet vibrant colors. Explore six of the prints here, and be sure to check out the rest of the collection at the Dwell Store.

Collection of exclusive framed prints for the Dwell Store in a variety of colors

Although compositionally simple, each print is comprised of several parts. The graphic is screen-printed on 140-pound arches watercolor paper, after which McGinnis fills the colored print with a hand-drawn line sketch in charcoal, ensuring that no two prints are exactly the same. From there, the 100 percent cotton paper is mounted and framed in an ash wood frame. Pictured here are the Yellow Leaf, Blue Horse, Blue Fern, Red Snake, and Blue Elephant prints.
