Jane Kim (2011)
Jane Kim came to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology after graduating from the California State University, Monterey Bay, Scientific Illustration program. Her detailed, highly accurate drawings are also beautifully artistic, and made her an ideal choice to create illustrations for the third edition of the Handbook of Bird Biology. Jane also created several technical illustrations showing how a transmitter is attached to Bar-tailed Godwits. These illustrations were then animated and used in a video about Bar-tailed Godwit migration. Following her internship, Jane established herself as a freelance illustrator. One of her first commissions was from the Cornell Lab, where she created a new mural celebrating the diversity of birds in the world.
