It’s possible I may have been drawing a lot of skulls and skeletons recently. Since I live about ten minutes from the California Academy of Sciences, it’s an ongoing temptation.
And a bonus one from the lovely Randall Museum.
And here’s something from last year I apparently forgot to post! This was a special event at the California Academy of Sciences.
And now, live documentation of some recent science-themed events! First, here’s cephalopod expert Danna Staaf doing a book tour-slash-squid dissection at Green Apple Books.
Next, notes from a day-long “short course” on microbe research hosted by the University of California Museum of Paleontology. All errors mine, all good jokes thanks to the speakers. Click to embiggen!
I just finished up the first of the animal drawing classes I’m running for the San Francisco Zoo. Titled “Savanna Sketching,” it focused on the hoofed animals and birds of the zoo’s African Savanna exhibit, and so I made a set of handouts for the students…
A selection of sketches from yesterday’s Women’s March in San Francisco. First, the initial rally at Civic Center; the quotes in the balloons are snippets from the speeches, although sadly I was too far in the back to see the actual speakers.
And then the actual marching down Market Street to the ferry building. It’s march-‘n’-sketch time!
Recently returned from sunny Baja California! Not much drawing to show for myself, but I did find a couple of perfect molted crab shells amid the tidepools…
I’ve been looking forward to the traveling Pterosaurs exhibit at the Academy of Sciences all year! And indeed, it was so pteriffic that it’s taken me three visits to draw all the wingtastic displays.
And now for round two!
I saved the best and biggest for last.
