Thank you to Slog-tipper Rose who turned me onto the artwork of Oregon State University professor Andrew Myers. From his web site:

Andrew Myers' art work is drawing-based with elements of installation and sculpture. This large scale work interacts with the exhibition space and engages the viewer by becoming part of the environment. Integral to Myers' work is the hand-made mark and the physical evidence and visual history of the artist's hand. Printmaking has also become a large part of Myers' studio practice. The technique of monotype printmaking and the size and time restrictions that go along with it, compliment and inform the large scale site-specific drawings.

His prints of dinosaurs and insects are currently being shown at Sisko Gallery in Seattle. I'm in love. Click here to see some of his pieces, and be sure to head to the gallery soon as the show closes March 4.
