Peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus)
… are the fastest members of the animal kingdom. When preying on other birds, peregrines can dive through the air at speeds of over 200 mph! Usually, the impact from the dive (or stoop) will kill or stun the prey, and then the peregrine will retrieve the prey in mid-air. This fearless species also happens to be one of the most common and widespread birds of prey in the world.

Digital positive for screen printing. The black will be the opening in the photo emulsion stencil and the negative space will be the trees. I’m printing these on wood so the natural wood will be the tree and the sky will be ink.

It’s a little known fact that a fly trapped inside a pitcher plant can see your soul at the end the long green tunnel.The fly will tell you your fortune with the humming of its wings if you trick it into thinking you will save it in return.

Some pretty swallowtails I killed just for you.
No but they’re paper. I am posting them just for you though.

Birds were distracting today, can’t help it. East span of the Bay Bridge way back there. The old span is facing possible demolition delays with the nesting season of the double crested cormorant approaching. Doh! Red tail hawk eating a rat and northern mockingbird btw.

I’m helping Felicia Gabaldon print some images on Faultline's wood art panels and toned paper. We printed 6 or so on birch wood panel that Felicia¬† is coloring by hand. So far she only has one finished, and it's pretty awesome. I can't wait to see the others.

Felicia is also in a show at Faultline Artspace in July, and we’ll be working on some new prints for that as well.
