Finished deer mouse.
Huon tree kangaroo commission I did a while ago.
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!
Everything I am currently working on is for clients so there isn’t much I can post but here are some trout from an interpretive panel!
Quick little self portrait for my new résumé.
Still working (slowly) on my wildflowers. Playing with backgrounds.
Ears ears ears.
Noc “helping” me with a project.
The Guild of Natural Science Illustrators conference was this past week. Here are some sketches I did during Nancy Halliday’s drawing small mammals workshop.
Sketches for a set of Colorado wildflower cards I’m doing. Prickly poppy and Mexican coneflower. More to come!
Notes and sketches I found in my sketchbook. From a seagull dissection by Chris Lay at the UCSC Museum of Natural History Collections.
Sorry for the grainy quality. Originals were in light blue pencil.
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.
