Here on Symbiartic we've featured hundreds of fine artists, illustrators, photographers, sculptors, comic illustrators and cartoonists, jewellery-makers, dataviz designers since we began. So for this year's September SciArt Blitz, Katie, Kalliopi and I are also going to share pieces of our own work.

Without re-stating my whole bio, I'll talk about plans for the future.

After completing some outstanding commissions that I hope will be well-received, my plan is to be well-into an ebook I've been storyboarding and making thumbnails for by June next year, tentatively titled A Naturalist's Field Guide to Flying Trilobites.

The image above, Knowledge Pupates was a gift to a colleague who was enthusiastic about my work when I was starting out. I have taken the original pencils, and painted under them using the spectacular ArtRage 4. The paint-style was an experiment for the ebook, to test styles. Not sure if I nailed the look 100% yet, and so I present it here for feedback.

What do you think?

An art blog like Symbiartic should be about process as much as finished work, after all.

Great timing! My blog The Flying Trilobite was named Canadian Science Blog of the Day today!


On this day last year, Kalliopi Best. Dinosaur. Art. Ever. featuring the work of Doug Henderson.
