Hominid skulls at the Natural History Museum
A series of pretty quick, pretty rough sketches at the American Museum of Natural History. For some reason, the human evolution hall is almost completely unlit in many places. I could barely see the paper when I was drawing these, let alone the specimens I was trying to draw. In addition to the near-total darkness, they have some incredibly loud sound installations that are really distracting.
I love this museum, but this particular exhibition design is a total nightmare. Next time I go, I'm bringing an iPod, noise-cancelling headphones and miner's helmet.
