Illustrator Chris Buzelli gives new meaning to the saying "birds of a feather flock together." In his painting entitled Strength In Numbers, the artist depicts a flock of birds forming one large bird that has succeeded in catching its aquatic prey. Buzelli, who is an accomplished illustrator based in New York, painted this piece for an article in PLANSPONSOR magazine that discusses the advantage of businesses joining forces and working with one another. His other works feature similar elements to portray different themes. One common component that can be spotted in just about all of his work is the presence of animals.

Whether they are accurately presented or recreated into a Frankenstein-like amalgamation of beasts, Buzelli is sure to include wildlife in his oil paintings. His aesthetic is often child-friendly with its soft, colorful palette, though more serious, adult themes tend to underly the innocent appearance to accompany an editorial piece. Buzelli doesn't make light of the articles' importance, but simply adds visual appeal. Also, his surreal spin on his commissioned work is especially enjoyable. A tiny man dragging a giant snail to clear the snow of a bitter winter to bring on the floral enlightenment of spring is whimsical while expressing the weighing strain of a never-ending season.
