this past July, I was fortunate to spend a couple days with my good friend, Dan, at his family’s Inn in Gustavus for Modern Farmer magazine. So cool to see Dan doing jus thing - in this case, harvesting beach asparagus for dinner that evening. Issue on newsstands now.

Artist & Illustrator:
Part of the "Stones & Bones" Series
"I always varied pens but rarely drawing surfaces.
Out of paper for a short time, I turned to the two inert materials: stone and bone.
These inert materials seemed so ordinary!
This is not the case. They are still “living” materials: rough, bold, smooth, cracked, absorbent ….
Taming the variety of surfaces on a volume is a real adventure!
So I put aside the paper and canvas fabric to experiment with new drawing sensations.
Hand fits. The fingers feel every bumps. The spirit leaves guided by reliefs. The tip of the pen folds and unfolds. I even had the feeling that this matter thank me for taking care of.
Today, I look differently. I understand them differently.
This experience has enriched my own drawing skills.
The “inert and dead” matter, gave me some lessons.
The following images are the result.”

The many faces of bats, in Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel’s Kunstformen der Natur, 1899-1904.
If you are feeling particularly nerdy, we have 223 articles, books, and book chapters with “chiroptera” somewhere in them, residing in our digital repository.
Kunstformen der Natur, translated into Art Forms of Nature, is by all accounts a marvel of 19th century scientific illustration. See more in our Galaxy of Images, or check out this exhibit on this work at the Marine Biological Laboratory.
