“Big Gulp” is a unique representation of a pelican with a fish in his craw. In designing this piece, I used many repeating lines and curves. There are parallel shapes within the pelican, the fish and the barnacles, and the pelican seems to morph into the pier he is perched on. All these stylistic elements work to create a harmony of composition. The asymmetry of the wings, counterbalanced by the tilt of the head, lead the eye upward to the fish, creating interest in the moment of his big gulp. It is my artistic statement on the old limerick–

“A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I don’t know how the helican!”

Big Gulp was awarded the Cyrus Dallin Best Sculpture at the Eiteljorg Museum 2017.
