This exhibit features animal illustrations by Professor Joseph Trumpey from the School of Art & Design and the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan.
The animal illustrations seen here are examples of the hundreds I have completed in recent years for publication and didactic exhibits. They are a collaboration with researchers and I always enjoy the challenges of learning new details about various species. Forging new relationships with people who share a passion for the beauty and fascination they have with nature is often the best aspect of the collaborations. The vast majority of the animal illustrations seen here are for the Grzimek’s Animal Life Encyclopedia.
