Palawan Peacock at the Huntington Library

We are thrilled to announce that David Tomb’s original study of the Palawan Peacock – Pheasant drawn at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at UC Berkeley has a permanent home in the collections of the Huntington Library in San Marino, California.

And David’s fundraising efforts to save the Philippine Eagle, the largest and most endangered raptor on the planet will be featured in the Spring issue of Living Bird.

Traverse- the Golden Gate Bridge

SFMOMA’s blog Open Space commissioned Amanda Hughen and Jennifer Starkweather to create new posts to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. Hughen/Starkweather create collaborative artworks that explore the layers, complexities and patterns that comprise a specific place. In addition to this recent work about the Golden Gate Bridge they are continuing their ongoing series of artworks Approach, Transition, Touchdown about the San Francisco- Oakland Bay Bridge.

Celebrate the Golden Gate

Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge with this beautiful boxed set of prints. Created by advertising icon and Bay Area resident Rich Silverstein as a benefit for the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, these prints (12″ x 20″ each) represent Silverstein’s personal passion for the Bridge and capture the reverence and exhilaration that millions of visitors feel upon seeing the Landmark span. Electric Works is proud to be the printer of these fine images.
