“Letter and drawing from Mary Anning announcing the discovery of a fossil animal now known as Plesiosaurus dolichodeirus, 26 December 1823”

Using the piece made in this post as a springboard, I made a poster…Although I really need work on my color choices, placement, and just…how to design in general.
DESIGN, WHY. D8
another botanical illustration I made for my class, picturing plants.
Hexameroceras and Friends
Various Silurian nautiloid-like cephalopods, including:
- Trimeroceras bulbosum,
- Mandaloceras bohemicum,
- Octamerella calistomoides,
- Ovoceras oviforme,
- Hexameroceras hertzeri,
- Conradoceras bohemicum,
- Pentameroceras mirum
A significant evolutionary milestone during the Silurian was the appearance of jawed and bony fish. Life also began to appear on land in the form of small, moss-like, vascular plants which grew beside lakes, streams, and coastlines.
