Nice patterns, yes? Nature is still the best designer. This was not the most exciting project. I forgot what prompted it. I promised myself I'd illustrate at least a dozen microscopic organisms. Oh yes! Our dog Wheezy had clostridium difficile. infection. I started reading my microbiology textbook and then reread this amazing book of images scanned by the electron microscope and just started doodling.
So you think you are hot?!
Today I wore a trench jacket over my long sleeved shirt which had a matching V neck t-shirt underneath. I had at least three layers of clothing, was drinking tea and shivering. Why? It is because my office was freezing, actually not just today but everyday. I think all the extra airconditioning in the building is directed to my office.
Several months ago, I received an email saying that Levenger was sending me a notebook for being a member of Behance. Normally, I will delete this type of email but since I used to shop at Levenger and always liked their product, I decided to fill out the form. Well tonight I received another email stating the item has been shipped. Wow!
I am stopping this project because I ran out of 6"x6" Bristol boards and have been cutting the wider pads to size.
