Author & Illustrator of "Wonders of the Annamites"
ERIC LOSH is an art director, illustrator and wildlife conservationist from the United States. He has a BFA in Graphic Design from West Virginia University and an MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
Losh's mission is to use his artwork and storytelling to inspire and educate viewers around the world about the beauty and importance of wildlife and wild places. He has worked with several educational, research and conservation-based non-profit organizations from around the globe to bring their projects to life through illustrations, books, branding, posters, and more.
In his latest work, "Wonders of the Annamites", Losh has teamed up with Project Anoulak, a Laos-based conservation non-profit run by Camille Coudrat, PhD. Together, they've combined their shared interests in conservation and art to develop a children's book that is now used in Laos and Vietnam to educate about the importance of local forests and wildlife. The book has editions in English/French (by Project Anoulak), English/Lao (by Project Anoulak), and English/Vietnamese (Published by Nha Nam Publishing). English editions are available here, and proceeds from sales will further benefit Project Anoulak's conservation mission.
In December 2017, Losh had the honor of attending the Vietnamese book launch of "Wonders of the Annamites" in Hanoi, Vietnam, hosted by Nha Nam Publishing. Along with Camille Coudrat (Project Anoulak) and Dr. Van Ngoc Thinh (WWF Vietnam), he participated in a Q&A panel about wildlife conservation issues and the impact of the book on the youth of Vietnam. Afterward, he had the privilege to conduct an art workshop with 30 students from a local art club. Losh and his wife Meghan also spent time touring some of Central Vietnam's national parks and nature reserves in and around the Annamite Mountain Range, experiencing firsthand many of the natural wonders featured in the book.
Losh has also written and illustrated “The Chorus of Kibale,” a children’s book about primates and other rain forest wildlife of Kibale National Park in Uganda.
