This series was for my Spring semester Drawing class that was taught by Victor Lara.
I chose to draw 50 birds from the Edna Lawrence Nature Lab on different weights of rice paper using a nibbed ink pen. I allowed the ink to do its work and create holes where it pooled. It was an interesting experiment to see how the uncontrollable aspect of the pooled ink interacted with the obsessive details of the bird.
With each bird, there is a minor distortion that shows that even the most liberated of creatures can become corrupted. (interpret this as you see fit)
Thank you for viewing.
