Audubon 2.0 Ivory-billed Woodpecker
App. 24 x 36 inches.
In 2012, illustrator, Edgar Allan Slothman set out with an Apple computer to reinterpret Audubon’s Birds of America in his own simplified, graphic style.
“For every print, I look for ways to break it down in some way. Often it is with geometric simplification or repeat patterns. For some, I create an entirely new color palette pushing beyond from the original as far as I can go. But in all, I stay very close to Audubon’s original composition—the core of these amazing ornithological visual stories.”
Edgar Allan Slothman is the pop art persona of American award-winning ad agency creative director, Don Carter. Mr. Carter has also illustrated seven children’s books and created two interstitial series for Disney Junior. Inspired by Andy Warhol and Charley Harper, a life-long love of birds and art come together in Edgar Allan Slothman’s Birds of America 2.0 series.
