After a little hiatus heres some things to have a gander at...
The guys over at It Nice That.com got taxidermist and sculpture Jazmine Miles-Long to do a little talk running through the process of stuffing and remodeling a pheasant. Check it out by following the link below (also is a link to her website - well worth a look).
In other news, illustrator and Skinfull co-founder Natalia Thorpe has just launched her website featuring all her brilliant work. And that can be found here: http://nataliathorpe.com/

"You wash the skin, just like you would a shirt. I normally use Daz, I think."
Grabbed a nice little article off the Guardian website talking to taxidermist Kim McDonald. He gives the basic day to day activities and views of a taxidermist and comes off as a very nice and funny chap. Check 'im: http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2008/may/24/workandcareers

On a wander through cyberspace I stumbled across the work of Boston based artist Jessica Joslin. She makes these amazing sculptures (see the little guy above, who i think is called Ludwig) using bits of bone, mental and other bits and bobs. Her website was down when I checked but she's got a profile and gallery at: http://beinart.org/artists/jessica-joslin
She met her husband when, during a discussion, they both revealed that they had dead birds in their freezers. Now thats romance....
