Act Animalia Alongside An Amigo

Pick a page from Animalia
Buy the coin featuring the regalia
You’ll need a few amigos
Preferably not with egos
Let your imagination go wild
As you recreate a scene from Graeme Base’s brainchild
Remember to hide the legal tender
Otherwise you won’t be a strong contender
Then build, draw, video or photograph your creation
And send your handiwork before you go on vacation
