Because I haven't done one in EONS. Mainly because I've been busy with work and the book, but since the book isn't happening now, I can show you guys this, which was one of my personal faves (an Atlas moth). You can click on it for a bigger version:





Also some Trekkie fan art which is the first thing I've drawn just for myself in about a year )

Last night I was in quite a lot of pain (I still feel sore), but to cheer myself up I decided to draw something cartoony and fun, as I haven't done so in a while. Plus I have a backlog of commissions to finish before I move to Manchester. I think I might draw a series of New Zealand flightless birds as they all seem so odd and interesting.

Guys, I'm going to work with scientists in the Entomology department. Before any of you go "but isn't that what you already do?" let me explain.

I'm going to do scientific illustration! I told Dan about the internship I was applying for and he said he would find some projects for me to do and that he would appreciate it because they need that sort of thing for papers etc. I don't know exactly what those projects will be yet but man, I'm excited!

Speaking of scientific illustration, the Images of Nature gallery opened today, and it's promoting both old and modern scientific illustration heavily. Here they are talking about one of my favorite images on display by Mark Russell.

I finally received my copy of the latest Waterhouse Times today while working in Entomology. The magazine officially comes out on Friday, and I will send out the hard copies to those who responded to my Facebook message. Here is the article! You can click through to read a large version:





Also, I recently did a page for [livejournal.com profile] jabberworks's The Pickle magazine. I did the science page hee hee. If you haven't checked out Sarah's website and books, you really should do so. I promise you will enjoy them.

Yesterday at the zoo we spent a lot of time in the Clore Rainforest Lookout. The Southern Tamandua was out earlier than usual because of the darkness at 4:00pm or so. She was a joy to watch and some of the keepers from other parts of the zoo even came to look at her since she rarely emerged in the daytime.

Here are some studies:




At one point she started wandering around outside the central rainforest area and came onto the walkway. It was amusing to watch, but the keepers decided for her safety and the safety of people (her claws are very sharp) that she needed to be put back in the centre of the enclosure. A keeper picked her up and she made this hissing sound and looked thoroughly indignant.

Here's an okapi sketch too:

So I finished off the last of the pumpkin pie this morning *weeps* and I thought I'd post what I drew over the weekend. The first is an image i redrew for my Dad. The original was drawn when I was about 18 or so, but we lost the larger version of the image so I redid it. The second is a drawing of the main character from the film Despicable Me with a Minion.

If selected it will be exhibited at the SCBWI 2011 conference. I'm currently building up more fiction work since most of my portfolio is non-fiction. (I can't help it, I love science!)

I managed to finish two more illustrations for my article and started practising Archaeological illustration, which is much more pared down. I need to start practising vector art again, since the clean line works well for this sort of thing. Now, the drawings:


Blue Footed Booby Birds
Blue Footed Booby Birds
Perhaps the Galapagos Island's most famous resident after the Giant Tortoise.
Violaceous Trogan
Violaceous Trogan
Trogans are gorgeous birds found throughout Central and South America. Perhaps the most well known is the Quetzal which is found in Guatemalan cloud forest. This guy is no where near as rare, and is fairly common on the Belizean mainland.
Eagle Axe God Pendant
Eagle Axe God Pendant
This was my first archaeological drawing. It's an "axe god". They are pre columbian pendants that were named "axe gods" because of the axe-like edge at the bottom of the sculpture. It was done in pencil and photoshop.
