Scientifically informed comics are some of the best kind, and I’ve got a soft spot for unusual animals outside of the Farm and Zoo toyset species such as the amphibian axolotls.

Trilobite Boy by Eric Orchard

Several years ago I painted a half-human, half-trilobite  hybrid in the style of a Minotaur. I’ve always been fascinated with the blended animals and humans from mythology (that’s where my Flying Trilobite handle comes from)  and trying out ideas with organisms that scientific discovery has revealed to us, everything from dinosaurs to microbes.

The Pitiful Human Lizard has Arrived

The Pitiful Human Lizard has Arrived

Toronto’s newest superhero accidentally trashes the Royal Ontario Museum. And although the ROM is my favourite place in Toronto, I enjoyed every page turning moment.
