My most recent project, Wolfbite is the first of two paired pieces exploring colour layering and duality. Companion piece coming soon.
Lithograph & watercolour, 2014, of the Santacrucian (Mid-Miocene) fauna of the Santa Cruz Formation in southern Patagonia. This print is part of my BFA senior thesis, focusing on the Sparassodont/Borhyaenoid marsupial predators of Miocene South America.
The detail images are as follows:
The hawk Thegornis musculosus (colouration based on a white-tailed hawk)
The porcupine Steiromys duplicatus
Sparassodonts Sipalocyon gracilis, climbing up the tree, and Cladosictis patagonica stalking in the bushes
The sparassodont Prothylacinus patagonicus with a hapless Hapalops (early sloth)
The shrew opossum Caenolestes clings to the branch above
Two rabbit-like notoungulates Interatherium robustum hide in the bushes below
A pair of "terror birds," Phorusrhacos longissimus, defend their meal of the large, rhino-like notoungulate Nesodon from a scavenging pack of sparassodonts, Borhyaena tuberata
Lithograph & watercolour, 2013, of the University of Kansas Natural History Museum's prize mosasaur, the "Bunker" Tylosaurus sp., specimen KUVP-5033. The pose of the life reconstruction may seem awkward, as it is a reproduction of the pose of the skeleton on display in the foyer of the KUNHM.
First prize winner of the Crayon & Stone: Natural History and the LIthograph student show at the Linda Hall Library, Kansas City, MO, 2013.
