The final product of another fun project! I had the pleasure of working with the wonderfully talented master sommelier Melanie Wagner on her incredibly thorough book Hello, Wine published with Chronicle Books. Here’s a bit about the book, courtesy of Chronicle: 

This breezy-to-read but super-informative guidebook is a stylish primer for any newcomer to the endlessly fascinating world of wine. Certified Sommelier Melanie Wagner’s down-to-earth tone and comprehensive knowledge make learning about wine fun and approachable. Twelve chapters explore every aspect of wine—from how it is made to how to drink it—and provide helpful descriptions of grape varietals and recommendations that can be taken to the wine store. Featured alongside these many encouraging lessons and suggestions are 60 whimsical and informative color illustrations. With insights ranging from what makes a wine exceptional, palate-building, and enjoying wine with others, this is the perfect self-purchase or gift for anyone who wants a great wine resource.

Features:
Eat this, drink that—pairing suggestions
A list of necessary equipment—and a list of what you don’t need
A winemaking 101 overview, from crush to aging
A glossary of wines and terms, from “aglianico” to “vintage”
A buying guide, including inexpensive bottles and great wine gifts
How tos: how to taste, how to throw a wine party, how to start a tasting group

Melanie Wagner is a Certified Sommelier, teacher, and wine consultant living in Chicago, Illinois.

Thanks to my great friend Andrew Ranville I can bring you evidence of the show this last weekend! Here is my work, as curated by Melissa of the Devos Museum in Marquette Michigan. I love what she did with these—I never would have thought to display them like this. I’m not going to share any more details—you’ll have to wait til the book is finished!! Shooting for mid-November. I’ll keep you posed. Heres a bit about them: 

The following are several pages from a work in progress blending of interpretations from the perspectives of science and art through experience and shared observations between two long distance cousins who came together on the island. Conservation biologist Eva Dwyer of Los Angeles, CA and illustrator Lucy Engelman of Grand Rapids, MI spent a collective 3.5 weeks on the island this past July and August carefully wandering the rocky shores and densely mossed interiors to absorb as much scientific and experiential data as possible. Along with collecting a copios amount of analytical content, Eva and Lucy exchanged personal observations of the island ultimately coming to shared appreciations of place and inhabitants, breaching the often polar opinions of left and right brain favored thinking. The end product will result in a book chronicling the illustrated, field-guided exploration of Rabbit Island to be published in the winter of this year. For more information and updates, please contact the artist.

Here are a few photos from the residency I am currently on with my cousin, collaborator, and brilliant conservation biologist Eva Dwyer. For more check the instagram @lucyengelman & @evadwyer & @rabbitisland. And last but not least, here’s a bit about us and our project:

Along with being collaborators, we are cousins from different sides of the country with very different strengths and a mutual passion for exploring and responding to the environments we have the chance to walk, swim, and climb through. During our stay on Rabbit Island, we hope to create a cohesive collaboration between science and art through the conservation efforts of creating guides and similar documentation of evidence of the islands carefully observed landscapes and its inhabitants.

Our project consists of many different aspects that will organically influence each other, much like our collaboration as scientist and artist. While on the island, we plan to identify birds and fish first and foremost and document their nesting habits, territorial traits, as well as any other identifying factors that present themselves. If the timeline allows, we hope to identify various elements of the vegetation as well including native plants, fungi, and trees.

In addition, after this fieldwork is complete and we have walked the 1.81 circumference of the island (overgrowth permitting), I plan to fabricate an illustrated map of the island to be included in the guide.

There will also potentially be several culinary residents on the island at the same time. The idea of additionally documenting edible plants of the island for the guide appeals to me as well and will add another element of collaboration, science - art - food.

The majority of this fabrication will take place in the following months so the project will be complete for the Devos Museum exhibition in the fall. Our main goal on the island is to do as much site specific data gathering as possible so we can collect a generous index of visual and sensory references to ultimately create a finished guide and map. My hope is that in creating this guide and map that blends together the artistic interpretation of illustration with the meticulous evidence of science, Rabbit Island can serve as an example of promoting conservation through collaborative understanding and representation of place.

Rabbit Island Reverse Garage Sale: Starts Today!

Rabbit Island is in need of a few supplies. In the spirit of our project we are hoping to source some of these items second-hand before falling back on retail outlets. (Similar to this idea, perhaps.)

It works like this: If you have any of…
