Recently I caught the WunderKammer exhibit at MOMA here in New York. It’s akin to the chambre des merveilles or ‘cabinet of curiosities’ shows of 16th century Europe. It’s a good show and I was sort of taken with the whole idea of a collection of strange objects and specimens. I absent-mindedly doodled this cabinet in my sketchbook, then sketched out an old musty room for it to sit in and quickly finished up the color and such in photoshop.
Next I want to see what’s in the drawers.
