Little Chicken Growing Up from Day 1 to Adulthood
Scientific illustration is a fascinating lens through which to explore life. And it is the marriage of fascination with life. I once sculpted a variety of chicken varieties as "hens on the nest" -- an art form folk art that some chicken-loving collectors have valued over the years. But the was sculptures were warped by natural heat before they made it to the mold stage. Drawings, however, have a way of being more accessible.
Miele Roth in his dozens of drawings of a chicken from birth to adulthood is a blog worth exploring. Feathers provide an intriguing view into living structural development that usually happens inside bodies -- but on these chickens are exposed to your view. The blog is up to 53 days and counting!
"I started a project that sat in my mind for a long time: to draw, in pen and ink, one chicken growing up every day, at least for the first two or tree months. Since this is undoable if I work like I do for my other pen and ink drawings, I have given myself a maximum amount of time I can spend on it: one hour," says Mieke Roth, the artist.
