A little update on my insect sculptures! I've made a few into double-brooches and have been experimenting with new building techniques to make them hardier and faster to make so I can lower prices. I am expecting to have at least 100 little insects available for sale through my solo show in April 2015 at la Luz de Jesus Gallery! So excited to see them all hanging together!
More updates to come!

Pentel Brush-Pen sketches from a some recent excursions to the Los Angeles and Santa Barbara Natural History Museums.
I would really like to take a couple weeks and tour great Natural History Museums around the US and just draw until my fingers fall off. If you have any suggestions for amazing Natural History Museums or Curio shops to visit please post them below! (Emphasis on NHM's within 1000 miles of Los Angeles, but out-of-the-country suggestions are welcome too!)
