Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Although aimed at artists, owlers will find this book useful. [GrrlScientist comment: I'll bet that at least a few Harry Potter fans will also love this book!]
Woodcarving Illustrated
I encourage any serious bird student, artist, or photographer to acquire at least one of these spectacular titles. There probably isn't a better reference available for anyone interested in portraying these amazing creatures.

Meet the Author

Raised in Abraham Lincoln's hometown of Springfield, Illinois, Denny Rogers holds a bachelor's degree in visual communications (with a double major in graphic design and illustration) and a master's degree in product design/ manufacturing from Illinois State University. He has done doctoral work in bronze sculpture and foundry technology and has taught design and illustration courses at ISU.

Denny has crafted numerous limited-edition bronze sculptures of animal, religious, and presidential subjects in cooperation with The White House and Presidential archives. His life-size bronze statue of an American Bald Eagle in dramatic flight, Winged Magnificence, was chosen by President Ronald Reagan for his second inaugural and by Vice President Bush's committee for the Texas Sesquicentennial.

Additionally, Denny has done graphic design/illustration work for officeholders, businesses, national figures, and entertainers, including singer/songwriter Willie Nelson, and has assisted police, coroners, and prosecutors in reconstructing crime scenes and human anatomy in homicide cases. His woodcarvings have been featured in national woodcarving and art publications, and his animal physiology illustrated reference books have been used by woodcarvers around the world to secure contracts, win blue ribbons, best of show, state, national, and world championships, and earn induction into the White House permanent collection and other prestigious world collections.

He has worked as a museum exhibits artist and has used his design, sculpture, and construction skills as a special effects artist in the movie industry.

A lifelong outdoorsman and wilderness enthusiast, Denny lives with his wife, Carol, in rural Bloomington, Illinois. They have two adult sons, Darren and Scott. Denny is currently working on a book for artists titled An Eagle, an Artist and Other Critters: The Life, Times, and Misadventures of Denny Rogers.
