John Pusateri's 'Birds' are incredibly realistic-looking illustrations of dead birds. The images are a bit disturbing if you're not into looking at dead animals, but knowing that they are just illustrations helps a little.

The birds are beautifully created and definitely realistic -- except, of course, for the element of being alive. John Pusateri's 'Birds' are incredible and since he's a lithographer, the works are even more spectacular to look at.

Implications - John Pusateri's 'Birds' instantly made me think of a dead bird that I recently saw on my way to work. This eery series will leave you a little unsettled, but intrigued by the natural beauty of the images created by Pusateri.
