Audubon AutomatronAugust 15, 2013

One of my favorite sculptures in this city is the James Audubon automatron located in the park office at Miami Whitewater Park. I love this piece. It is a life size figure of James Audubon sitting down and next to him is a pond with live turtles that swim around. If you press the buttons located at the pedestal – he comes alive and you hear him talking and he moves pretty realistically. It is very surreal.  So, of course I decided to draw it and document it before he breaks down. It is nice to have a human subject that stays still long enough to draw them.
