botanical and zoological illustration - barred owl rendering



most definitely not my thing.

illustration timeline - history of art education

so, for my history class, we were asked to create a visual timeline of our respective field. mine being illustration, i made a "library bag" filled with tiny homages of the picture books most influential to me as a child. in each book, i left a library card with the last date stamped being approximately the time i personally discovered it.

(Books, from left to right: J. Otto Seibold's Alice in Pop-Up Wonderland, Betsy Lewin and Doreen Cronin's Click, Clack, Moo, Edward Lear and Ruth Sanderson's The Owl and the Pussycat, Kit Williams's Masquerade, Eulalie Osgood Grover's The Sunbonnet Babies in Holland, Stephen Cosgrove and Robin James's Serendipity, Wanda G'ag's Millions of Cats, and Clinton Hatchett and Stephen Marchesi's The Glow in the Dark Night Sky Book.)
