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. To make this feat even more impressive, Kim painted the individual birds to scale in her 40-foot by 70-foot mural. It all began when she was interning at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the program’s director approached her with this in-depth idea. Immediately, the artist agreed to take on this exhaustive venture and, along the way, she developed a unique relationship with each bird she painted. Kim explains, “When starting a bird, I begin with the eye. Not only does it anchor the animal and inform the rest of the shape—it gives the bird life, a personality.”
