Scientific Illustrator Hand-Paints Giant Mural Featuring 243 Modern Bird Families #ArtTuesday

Grand and gorgeous mural by Jane Kim, from My Modern Met.

Scientific illustrator Jane Kim (of Ink Dwell) spent over 16 months painting one member from each of the world’s 243 modern bird families.

Immediately, the artist agreed to take on this exhaustive venture and, along the way, she developed a unique relationship with each bird she painted.
