Hello beautiful people! I’ve started using Patreon as a means to support my art (maybe even pay the rent?? 😬). It’s a crowdfunding platform that works like Netflix - for a couple bucks a month you can help me keep drawing- and get cool art, helpful tutorials, and fun stuff in return! 🎨🖋 This drawing is one of the high quality downloads you can get this month for just $5 (a cup of coffee)! But if that’s still too much, you can donate as little as a dollar to help me out. patreon.com/kcgillies ❤️🌻please check it out!

We have a #newacq for #Feathursday! This edition of Martinet’s Histoire des oiseaux just arrived in Special Collections, and we are awed by the use of gold and pigments in the hand-colored illustrations. Marvel at this glorious peacock, and stay tuned for more images from this new book in upcoming Thursday posts.⠀ ⠀ QL674 .M38 1787⠀ ⠀ 

You can almost hear the blue jay’s noisy call in this illustration! From Nests and eggs of birds of the United States by Thomas G. Gentry. Philadelphia : J.A. Wagenseller, 1882. 598.2 G289n⠀ ⠀ #bluejay #bird #feathursday #illustration #chromolithograph #histsci #scientificillustration #sciart #specialcollections #rarebooks #universityofmissouri #mizzou #librariesofinstagram #iglibraries #ifttt



Repost from @stephaquarelle ・・・ Thank you @artsnacks for sending me the PERFECT colors to do this blue jay wing study for my July #artsnackschallenge! I love how creamy and pigmented the watercolor pencils are. The reference for the wing is from the Slater Museum of Natural History Bird Wing and Tail digital image collection - so cool! #painting #art #watercolor #artsupplies #sketchbook #artsnacks #slatermuseum #naturalhistory #scientificillustration #natureart #birdart #bird #bluejay #wing #feathers

We’re in love with both the illustration and the description of the #magpie in this volume of Martinet’s Histoire des oiseaux. Rough translation:⠀ ⠀ The plumage of this bird, which seems to be black and white from a distance, however produces more agreeable effects when we are closer to it. Its black takes on more or less brilliant shades as it moves according to the light, the same as the throats of pigeons. ⠀ ⠀ The author goes on to describe magpies as lively, bold, enterprising, shrewd, and talkative. A very energetic bird!⠀ ⠀ QL674 .M38 1787⠀ ⠀ #histsci #scientificillustration #bird #blackandwhite #illustration #art #history #specialcollections #rarebooks #mizzou #universityofmissouri #librariesofinstagram #iglibraries #ifttt
