Founded in 2012 by artist Jane Kim and writer Thayer Walker, Ink Dwell studio creates art that explores the wonders of the natural world. Merging classical techniques of science illustration with modern fine art, they create public and private commissions, illustrations, exhibitions and much more. Ink Dwell makes everyday places special and enhances iconic locations with wondrous imagery.
To celebrate its centennial, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology commissioned Ink Dwell to paint a 2,500 square-foot mural titled “From So Simple a Beginning: Celebrating the Evolution and Diversity of Birds.” The mural depicts the 375 million year evolution of birds, from the 30-foot long Yutyrannus, ancestor of the first feathered dinosaur, to the tiny marvelous spatuletail hummingbird. All 270 species represented are painted to scale. Check them out on Instagram.
Obi Kaufmann is author of the popular and epic California best-sellers The California Field Atlas and The State of Water that are each filled with science, history, poetry and art. Growing up in the East Bay as the son of an astrophysicist and a psychologist, for Kaufmann, the epic narrative of the California backcountry holds enough art, science, mythology, and language for a hundred books to come. When he is not backpacking, you can find the painter-poet posting at @coyotethunder #trailpaintings on social media.
