I and the Bird #24: The Graphic Novella Edition

Carel P. Brest van Kempen, artist, writer, and author of the blog Rigor Vitae: Life Unyielding, is the host of the current edition of I and the Bird, the carnival of the best of recent bird and birder blogging. It's a wonderful presentation, a story in illustrations, and a great collection of posts. Check it out.

And if you haven't been to Rigor Vitae before spend some time there. Many of Carel's eerie and wonderful wildlife paintings are on display, as well as some great natural history writing. Just this past week his post In Cold Blood, about the different thermo coping mechanisms of cold-blooded creatures, answered a lot of questions that have been buzzing around in my mind.

And there's more: Carel has recently had a book of his art published, RIGOR VITAE: Life Unyielding. Clicking on the link takes you to a site where you can see sample pages from the book, and learn more about it.
