These taxidermy displays ironically have been shaped by thousands of air rifle BBS. Courtney Timmermans has taken on the meticulous task of recreating this unharmed animal version. Impressive antlers, tusks, beaks and eyes with realistic body sculpting present an Urban Herd in truest form.  Species range from royal maned lion to the traditional moose. Her work is showing at Chicago’s Jean Albano Gallery until August 24.

I find a way to fearlessly provoke your senses and take you by the heart to whatever it is I’m writing about. My sweet spot is creative writing, but for the last 20 years I have been providing freelance content for publications on sustainability and green practices, design, architecture, fashion, and non-profit charity. Recently all wrapped up in producing my first book. I have bounced from NYC to Indianapolis, but my true home is a lovely small town in Central Pennsylvania where there’s a legit drive-your-tractor-to-school-day.
