Winging it
The great Joe Kimberling at Los Angeles magazine called a few weeks ago with a fun project: The Birds of Los Angeles.
The article focuses on the incredible range of birds that thrive and flourish in LA's urban jungle, and the idea was to capture the feeling of classic naturalist art, but with contemporary urban settings. As always, Joe was great to work with, and the design of the spreads is clean, beautiful and easy to read. If only bird guides were this well designed!
Detail of the garbage can—this was a fun bit!
