Luke Seitz (2015)
Ever since a male Scarlet Tanager captured Luke’s attention when he was six, he has been drawing birds and watching their every move. As as student Cornell, he was an active participant on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Redhead birding team, and was involved in many other Lab projects in addition to the Bartels Science Illustration Program.
Luke has a special interest in illustrating field guides, and for his main project he illustrated a map of the world, depicted as bird heads representing each region. This art was used to promote Global Big Day that was used on a tote bag premium for Cornell Lab members. Luke also created several silhouettes of birds for use on our All About Birds website, in addition to art for our publications, and he continues to create art for Global Big Day.
