    Lend your hand to a living, breathing mural wall with Paint Pens Collective and let your eyes wander at pop-up galleries by Roll Up Gallery and ArtSpan, all set against an awe-inspiring backdrop of 38,000 live animals.

    In the Piazza, mellow out to the entrancing, deep house sounds of Roche, then kick it up a notch with the techno-house stylings of New Jersey producer Physical Therapy.

    Check out SF’s hottest new art convener Artbeats as they take overAfrican Hall with a curated selection of artists and galleries, including Modern Eden Gallery, among others.

    Head upstairs to check out the Academy’s rare collection of Andy Warhol animal prints—from neon zebras to technicolor gorillas.

    Throughout the evening, see the beautiful ways that art intersects with biology at the Project Lab with live drawing demos by Academy scientific illustrator Sean Edgerton.

  • "My career as an artist has been all over the place- from running a glass and ceramic studio, to working in the animation and visual effects industry, to creating puppets and sets for stop motion film. Throughout all of it, I've been creating these curious and absurd creatures you see on this website. Lurking on the fringes of fairytale and folklore, these characters exist in their own cosmic events, referenced from mythology, religion, cartoons, comic books, and make believe."
