This is an idea I had about a year ago and finally got around to executing. Cyclo-meleon!
As one of the few animals capable of independent eye movement, I thought it would be entertaining to see a chameleon as Cyclops from the X Men. The name similarity is just a bonus!
Update: A friend suggested “chameleops”, which is just so much better!

A Black-eyed Hermit Crab (Pagurus armatus) using the shell of a Lewis’s Moon Snail (Neverita lewisii).

The first image is a phantom view, and the second one is an animated gif, both showing what the hermit crab’s body looks like inside the shell.

(Apparently animated gifs is the cool thing to do, so I thought I’d see how it can enhance scientific illustration.)

Really great use of animation!

Some more animals sketches for my weird animal alphabet. Marmoset through springhare.
Over the past week, I moved from Marina, California to Fort Collins, Colorado for internships with the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory and ECOS Communications. It has been a hectic transition, but I am finally settling in and looking forward to starting work! Should have some new stuff up soon.

Drawings in the RMBO Newsletter

My first freelance project for the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory involved some quick drawings of an osprey and hummingbird.

They’ve been incorporated into their spring newsletter here.
