James Audubon and Turkeys

                                          Ridiculously Realistic Hand Turkey by starry-seas
Over the weekend, I was brainstorming what I could do that would touch upon Thanksgiving, without actually doing some ridiculous Thanksgiving lesson plan. I decided to teach the sixth graders about James Audubon and about the careers of scientific and/or medical illustrators. I then led them in a step by step drawing exercise of a cartoon turkey. The results are very fabulous. I will post the results soon. The image above has nothing to do with the lesson itself, but I found it funny.

  1. Hey I'm the one that drew that turkey! Out of curiosity, how did you find it? Glad you found it funny, it was fun to make. Also a crazy random happenstance that I happen to be pursuing a degree in scientific illustration. Wish you were my teacher, I had never heard of it until my senior year of high school (and quickly fell in love with it as a career).
