This is largely what I’ve been doing. Lots of taxidermy. Not pictured are the skins that got sent off to the tannery, the projects waiting for completion(two foxes, rabbit, squirrel, coyote, and a host of birds), or the all-faux-materials sheep back half I worked on for a week.
This is my job from 8-4 or 9-5 every weekday. It doesn’t pay amazingly, but it pays better than minimum wage and I never get tired of wildlife art.
I worked on the tail end of this project as well: http://www.ncarboretum.org/exhibits/traveling-exhibits/wicked-plants/wicked-plants-main/
