Mutualism research for Art. Learned about a unique symbiotic relationship a certain squid has with bacteria that colonize its light organ.
I want a light organ.
I think my Patreon crew might be made of gremlins - they’ve doubled overnight! This is great news for everyone who digs my art, because I just met my first monthly goal and am thus releasing a paste-up of an Alien Botany specimen at the end of the month. Hopefully a big one, you just have to promise to be a responsible vandal and paste only where it will beautify, not deface.
I took these for my Patreon page, which launched right this minute.
Patreon is a fabulous place that’s part old-school patronage we can actually afford and part art coven, with secret blogs, special stuff, tangible snail mail and occasional face time. It’s mutual motivation and encouragement and a moonlit harbor in the murky fog of creative seclusion.

New in the Biorequiem shop. This deluxe set is a collection of six Alien Botany mini-prints, printed in dull crimson on tattered, textured cotton rag. Each collection is unique, some with hand-added details.
2174 AD. Five years ago, a shipwrecked cosmonaut from the exploratory mission Novy Mir documented the flora of an unknown planet in quadrant NQ3 while waiting for a rescue mission. Her notes and sketches were found inside a charred capsule adrift in the Arctic Ocean. The scientific community, awed by what she discovered, has been attempting to decode the increasingly incoherent words and pictures ever since.
