One of the first projects we did in class this year was to draw a crystalized fossil using carbon dust. For my poster from that project, I incorporated my enjoyment of math along with my ammonite drawing to explore how its spiral related to the rest of the universe, both large and small.

I spent some time this past quarter volunteering to draw a couple of illustrations for an update to Flora of the Pacific Northwest, a comprehensive book originally published at the University of Washington in the 1970’s.

One of the drawings was of Coltsfoot (Tussilago fanfara). I made a poster out of that drawing for one of my class projects, taking the diagnostic drawing I had done for the book and expanding on it to include a variety of animals that interact with it.
