I’ve got a real knack for taking photos and never sharing them! A few short months ago Jason and I went to the Museum of Natural History in Los Angeles. Much of it changed since I last visited for a class, and he’s never been at all, so it was must-go kind of day.
The main attraction for us was the new dinosaur exhibit. The specimens were breathtaking and the exhibit itself really impressively designed! I also finally caught a photo of his Christopher hat in action[repair and all]. He hardly lets it leave his sight, so I can’t complain about not having a proper shoot done for it to show off my handiwork. :]
My most admired part of the dinosaur exhibit is how the lighting really brought out the little details and textures of these bones. Close friends know that I have a real soft spot for anatomy, so spending time here was a real treat.
Sometimes it really hits you that all of these fantastic things are real–there’s a lot that’s beautiful in this world. Makes me honored to have such a large bank of imagery and information to draw from, both as a concept artist and designer for knitwear.
I invite you to come by if you ever have the chance–I was really attached to the dinosaurs and animal exhibits, but there is much more to see [and maybe in a million years, pics of those things might find themselves on this blog too].
