This drawing is part of a short series called "Model Organisms". [link]

Given the recent work overload and the upcoming writing of my thesis I have decided to give in to my nerdy nature. The "Model Organisms" series will depict the organisms most widely used in scientific studies "modelling" in fashion magazine covers. All with appropriate headings and comments, of course.

The series will go "up the evolutionary ladder" (if you are an anthropocentric prick and believe man is the ultimate conception of evolution)

Therefore I begin with the lovely Eschrichia coli, the most famouse Gram negative bacteria. [link]

NEXT:
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (the beast yeast)
Arabidopsis thaliana (the cress in stress)
Caenorhabditis elegans (the nematode on the road)
Drosophila melanogaster (aye, aye, fruit fly!)
Danio rerio (dont squish the zebrafish)
Mus musculus (the mouse from your warehouse)

I just saw that it actually says escherichia, I read it as escherichic because of the flagellum distracting me XD that would've fit, too
