Mythical Flying Trilobite by GlendonMellow Mythical Flying Trilobite by GlendonMellow
I did this painting in oil on a piece of shale. It was featured in Seed magazine's online page, Page 3.14 along with a profile about me. You can find it at:

It was fantastic to get my work in front of so many scientists, and now, fellow artists.

That's hopefully the idea! Why not imagine and play with scientific findings?

Thanks, hollowhorizon!

Great piece, are you a fellow biological illustrator?

I'm not sure. I haven't been paid to illustrate anything yet. I really enjoy drawing fossils and nature though, usually with a bit of a surreal twist.

Umm, if you're interested, there's more at my website. [link]

I think publicity is just as good as getting paid though. If this was featured in a science journal of some kind then I would definately consider you an illustrator. Carl Buell didn't get paid for his ambulocetus or pakicetus drawings but they're still by far his most popular works.

This is true. I did have a feature on Page 3.14, the online editorial of Seed Magazine. So that was very cool.

How about you, where do you hope to go with your work?
