Spiral Out, Keep Going by ceremonially-unclean Spiral Out, Keep Going by ceremonially-unclean
I must admit, as I get further into my major (ecology and evolutionary biology) in college, I just fall more and more in love with the biodiversity of our planet. Hence, my first ever self portrait done on my own volition.

I've been working on this on and off over the summer. I finally think it's finished. Not sure if I want to color it...Have fun checking it out; it's kind of like a science edition of Where's Waldo :B


--- 100% hand drawn, micron pens ftw.

EDIT: To make this more like Where's Waldo, I suppose I'll actually list what's in here. Some are very obscure critters, some if you have never heard of them, hit them up on google. Have fun scoping them out.
- Sea Nettle
- Spiny dogfish
- Diatoms
- Polychaete Worm
- Cicada
- Foraminiferons
- Venus Flytraps
- Mushrooms
- Sargassum
- Crab Zoea
- Loggerhead Sea Turtle
- African Fat-Tailed Gecko
- Blue Crab
- Bryozoans
- Sea Fan
- Anemone Fish
- Spider
- Diamondback Scales
- Amphipod
- Nautilus
- Sunflower
- Chocolate Chip Starfish
- Milk Thistle
- Giant Kelp
- Sea Lettuce
- Sea Urchin
- Red-Lipped Viper
- Azaleas
- Sea Anemones
- Ladybug
- Pikaia
- Ammonite
- Barnacles
- Bird's Nest

.......wow.

Really impressive! Before I colour any illustations, I make a copy to mess around with first (althought, you'd probably already thought of that!). I think it stands alone as a b&w illustration. Great work. :)
