natural history museum in la, dino exhibit

I've got a real knack for taking photos and never sharing them! A few short months ago Jason and I went to the Museum of Natural History in Los Angeles. Much of it changed since I last visited for a class, and he's never been at all, so it was must-go kind of day. nhm spring 2013
nhm spring 2013 The main attraction for us was the new dinosaur exhibit. The specimens were breathtaking and the exhibit itself really impressively designed! I also finally caught a photo of his Christopher hat in action[repair and all]. He hardly lets it leave his sight, so I can't complain about not having a proper shoot done for it to show off my handiwork. :] nhm spring 2013
nhm spring 2013 My most admired part of the dinosaur exhibit is how the lighting really brought out the little details and textures of these bones. Close friends know that I have a real soft spot for anatomy, so spending time here was a real treat. nhm spring 2013
nhm spring 2013 Sometimes it really hits you that all of these fantastic things are real--there's a lot that's beautiful in this world. Makes me honored to have such a large bank of imagery and information to draw from, both as a concept artist and designer for knitwear. nhm spring 2013
nhm spring 2013 I invite you to come by if you ever have the chance--I was really attached to the dinosaurs and animal exhibits, but there is much more to see [and maybe in a million years, pics of those things might find themselves on this blog too].

  1. Wow. You have some very impressive dinosaurs on display at your NHM. I don't take full advantage of the museums I have at my disposal. I should make more of an effort to spend time at them.

    1. you definitely should! i don't know about any of the others but tickets are pretty inexpensive at my museum. if it were any easier to get to, i'd go there at least once a month to sketch!

  2. Natural History museums are my favorite! I love the dinosaurs and dioramas and everything at the ones in NY and DC -- I'll have to visit that one the next time I'm in LA!

  3. I'm always envisioning bones and other anatomical features designed into fibre art pieces. I hope this visit brings you some wonderful inspiration!
