After the little birds' morning feeding frenzy, squirrels descended.
Squirrels, trees, branches and birds are figuring into my sketches. Looking at all this biology makes me think of Charley Harper. A copy of his Golden Book of Biology from 1961 is for sale on Ebay for over $300. He died in 2007. I just bought some of his chidren's books for presents here
There is a great interview and illustrator tutorial with Eleanor Grosch (a Charley Harper fan) over at Grain Edit, Print Magazine chose her as one of their picks for New Visual Artists of 2008. Her shop is here . GrainEdit is one of my new favorite RSS feeds. Reindeer garden sculpture by Julie Dermansky
