Anatomical heart and florals for Kelly. Really enjoying this one! So excited to put color in next month!
The cat’s out of the bag! Here’s the giant secret project I’ve been sitting on: several fellow artists from my scientific illustration program and I are doing a Kickstarter campaign to help get a NATURAL SCIENCE THEMED COMIC BOOK off the ground. As the title implies, this book is going to be awesome, so please stop by and pitch in if you can! The perks include commissioned artwork by me and other artists!
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.
1989 NASA concept art shows a space vehicle that provides an articial-gravity environment for Mars exploration crews: ” The piloted vehicle rotates around the axis that contains the solar panels. Levels of artificial gravity vary according to the tether length and the rate at which the vehicle spans.”
