Ian Rogers: Collective Noun Project
While he posts about a wide range of things, focusing on a variety of artists… I wanted to draw particular attention to some of his recent work. Lately, he’s been doing a series of illustrations focusing on collective nouns.
I kind of vaguely knew about these nouns, but seeing the Wikipedia list kind of blew my mind. I know of a parliament of rooks and a murder of crows through The Sandman comics… but there are a ton that I’ve never heard of. It’s pretty fascinating to just look through these different words/pairings.
Looking over these illustrations, I’m imagining them as part of a book or event as prints. He should totally get a Kickstarter project going…
