Canadian Quetzalcoatlus © Peter Bond

As Symbiartic’s representative Canadian, I’m at least one science illustrator who stands with Canadian scientists today to protest our Conservative government’s attack on science and science communication. And Peter Bond, illustrator and educator who created the Canadian Quetzalcoatlus is another.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Conservative government of Canada’s meddling with science, I suggest you start at John Dupuis‘ Confessions of a Science Librarian blog, on his post The Canadian War on Science: a long, unexaggerated, devastating chronological indictment.

You can continue with Ivan Semeniuk‘s reporting at The Globe & Mail about today’s events.

We’ve featured artwork by Peter Bond here on Symbiartic before, with his radical™ Prehistoric Ninja Turtles.

You can find Bond’s gallery on DeviantArt, and see even more pterosaur art from ART Evolved’s Pterosaur Art Gallery, where this image originally appeared.


On this day last year, Kalliopi featured some classic illustration by Louis Figuier in her post The Great Architeuthis
