Garden and gun Magazine is a monthly publication that celebrates the modern South (US) and features the best in Southern food, style, travel, music, art, literature, and sporting culture. They also create and host different art experiences and events every year. For early 2022, they organised a multi-venue series of events surrounding an art exhibition that explores conservation through the lens of birds. I was commissioned to create 5 American birds based on the prints and artworks of John James Audubon for the exhibition 'Birdwatching' held at the Dewberry Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina during February-March 2022.
The birds that were requested for this event were a Northern cardinal, a couple of Bobolinks male, and a couple of South Carolina parakeets.
