Research Casting International recently had the pleasure of working with Amanda while articulating a blue whale skeleton for the Natural History Museum in London UK. During this project Amanda came in to our facility and recorded the process of fabricating the Blue Whale skeleton. This is the first time we have ever had an artist come in and record our work as it is being built. The process was recorded primarily in charcoal, watercolour and conte drawing. Usually this type of work is only recorded using photography only. While photography is an excellent tool for capturing a realistic portrayal of the completed work it does not capture the feeling, energy, passion or life that goes into creating our work. Amanda captured all of this in the life drawings she created during this 5-month time.
