A small watercolor painting of a Long-tailed Skipper Butterfly that I gave to my academic advisor/professor as a thank-you for being super awesome (we even made him into a meme). I’m graduating soon (tomorrow, actually!) and I’ll miss having him as a teacher among many other things.
My first professional scientific illustration! This is a drawing of microscopic butterfly genitalia from an unnamed species in the genus Zestusa.
5 months ago I was so happy to announce that I had reached 5 000 followers on Tumblr. This month, you are more than 50 000.
I love internet.
