This an interactive art and science project. I started it back in 2011 as a travel journal/webcomic/science illustration thing as a traveling art project. It began as a sketchbook that I made while traveling in Zambia with another science illustrator and a bunch of peace corps volunteers. I wrote and illustrated a book in a month, when I came back I started sharing my sketchbook online. That’s what started this illustrated science/art blog.
I’m a science illustrator/writer. Mostly, I’m using a sketchbook, watercolor and pens (yes. traditional media) to do silly art things that make me and my friends laugh. Things vary depending on which projects I’m working on. Some highlights include: A webcomic: Axolotl and Tuatara, a story about insecticide resistance in mosquitoes, an insect genetics themed nursery, and An Introduction to Model Organisms. Things also occasionally get textiley. If you want to print and sew you’re own cuddly chambered nautilus, Landsat Data clothes, bee or ctenophona quilts, please feel free to print and use these designs for yourself.
