Imaginary Ornithology

October 15th, 2021

I’ve been drawing a lot of birds lately. Sacha has started down the rabbit hole — wrong metaphor of course — of birding and I’ve been riding her coattails, reading guide books and staring at colorful little beasts up in random trees with binoculars. Of course, the imagination wanders and I started drawing my own birds.

A few weeks ago I came across a call for entries for a show at Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles. I’m a fan of this gallery, as they specialize in animation art, illustration, and surrealism. A few colleagues show there, and I’ve thought about sending stuff in for a while. I feel like the pencil drawings I’ve been making over the last year are the first work I’ve done that would really fit into a place like this. They set a limit of six entries per artist, and I was sort of beside myself when I learned that all six of my birds were accepted.

The show is called Power in Numbers. It’s a one-night show, each piece is priced at $100, and everything is 5 x 7 inches. It’ll be up for one night, November 19, at Gallery Nucleus in LA.
