I just finished class and I was walking down the hall and all I hear behind me is “Oh hey man. What’s up with the camera?” and I fucking froze and turned around and the guy replies with “Yeah it’s just for a project, I have to film everything” and I nearly broke down and cried
Artist Rebecca Jewell uses a painstaking process involving a photo-plate, ink, an etching press and ethically-sourced feathers to create these beautiful and incredibly delicate works of art. Her creations are inspired by the native birds and feather artifacts that she first encountered living in New Guinea for a year in 1982. It was there that she learned how important both the birds and their feathers are to the native people and saw the amazing headdresses that they made.
"Of the pieces she says: ‘Over the past years I have drawn and painted feathers and birds, and explored how they have been used to enhance and decorate humans. I am also aware of the plight and precarious status of many species, which I wanted to represent in the delicacy of the image on the feather.’"
Rebecca is now an artist in residence at the British Museum, Department of Africa, Oceania and the Americas where she “creates work that explores the shared histories between people that create certain artifacts, the explorers, anthropologists and travelers who obtain them, and the museums that house them.”

The Art of Thief || Garrett
"We tried to keep Garrett’s character and personality largely intact from the previous games. Garrett is a self-enforced loner because of what he does and because emotions and relationships only tend to get in the way. Therefore he tries to remain self-sufficient without too many people in his life who he would call ‘friends’. He thinks a lot more than he says and knows a lot more than he lets on. When he speaks to himself he’s often more insightful and poetic than he is when he’s addressing others."
