Striker part II

I am so excited to finalize the scanning of the taxidermy Coopers Hawk, this one has been quite an adventure. It will be off to the 3-d printer soon. I think it will be a fine compliment to Katie's hand cut paper wall work showing scenes of small birds frolicking among beautiful foliage, but the Coopers Hawk is a fierce and unforgiving predator .

I recently spent a week in New York visiting some of my favorite spots and doing some research, here is the hawk case at the American Museum of Natural History.

This was a new display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, its all birds modeled by Kandler for Meissen around 1740.

Rat Race

Someone call the Piper. The rat and I go way back and I want to use this guy for some of the more architectural themed projects that are coming up for Future Retrieval. We foresee this 3-d scan of the freeze dried rat printed out about the size of a Gremlin, maybe..
