Gather 'round, my bird and bird-admiring friends!
If you've spent any amount of time in my gallery, I'm sure you have guessed by now that I am passionate about birds. I have been since I was a toddler-- literally-- and saving birds through awareness has always been a goal of mine. It's one reason I am honored to announce that my work along with the work of many other very talented artists are going to be featured in a book called "Losing Altitude". It is an art book, showcasing endangered bird species that need help. One of the biggest hurdles facing endangered birds and steps to help them is awareness-- it's true that we are often bombarded with imagery of more charismatic, well-known animals such as leopards, tigers, and pandas. All of them are very deserving of our help, but birds are also facing some serious issues and not many people know about it.
That's one reason a book like this is pretty awesome. The more well known the book gets, the better the chances that people will see-- and delight in the art of course, but hopefully take small steps in their lives to help these beautiful animals.
If you are interested in the book, buying it or just supporting it, check out the kickstarter here: [link]
Even if you cannot help at this time (and trust me, I do understand!), you are welcome to spread the word!
