Completed December 2014 – All drawings are 30″ x 22″ Pastel on Magnani Pascia Paper.
MicroZoo is a contemplation on how the world is full of wonder, with science our society’s new magic. So often what hits the news are discoveries of huge proportions; new galaxies, touring Mars via rover, or listening to the music of comets. But what of the small beauties so infinitesimal that even if they were right under our nose we would not be able to see them without aide? What if you didn’t even need to travel to the stars to visit an alien world full of beasts that baffle the imagination? I collected a micro menagerie of terrestrial creatures and drew them in a scale that can not escape notice.
