this crow

Completed taxidermy crow. Many, many, many aspects that need improving on...looking forward to smaller birds after this feat.

The above and following are works I have finished during my first quarter at CSUSB. The first is Dove, rendered on canvas with acrylic paint.

Rabbits: painted in acrylic on the lining of a rabbit fur stole. It was difficult getting used to the texture, but for me, it paid off. I'll be submitting this to the student show - wish me luck!

Just a close up...

Swarm: I don't know the exact measurements of the canvas used here, but the horse head is right about life-sized. The gestural lines were made with Black India Ink. This was also (and I should mention) a performance piece. I played Flight of the Bumblebee while wearing bug-vision goggles to start this off...the horse head and the little flies came later.

lucky day

Found this crow who was victim to a car crash in Yucaipa. I already taxidermied him or her and that was a challenge of sorts. I wasn't expecting so much work after working on parakeets! I'll post pictures soon of the completed crow. I can't wait.

Polyvore: I luv it.

my museum

This little guy is one of the newest additions to my collection. It's a deer skull found in the woods with some dried skin still attached! What a birthday present...
