Of late, media has come to love the “But wait! Science and art do go together!” narrative, but many scientists knew that all along. Following in the naturalist tradition, Psi Wavefunction at the Ocelloid decided to doodle some trilobites. With such incredible diversity and many outlandish forms, Wavefunction reduced it back to a prototypical trilobite. And who doesn’t love good trilobite art?

    A smile in the morning.

    The solemn
    desire is a
    sadness that
    often returns
    when a fine
    thought appears.

    Francesco Sinibaldi
