Nembrotha kubaryana
Nembrotha kubaryana, also known as the variable neon slug, is a species of colorful sea slug. This species occurs in the tropical Indo-West Pacific. It uses the toxins in its prey ascidians to defend itself against predators. It stores the ascidian’s toxins in its tissues and then releases them in a slimy defensive mucus when alarmed.photo credits: dinca, Mark Harris, thalassagraphics, MerMate/Eunice Khoo


Sea slugs are wonderful and don’t try to tell me different because I will plug my ears and sing “Henry the 8th I am” very loudly to drown you out.

Otter doing science! (or… magic?)

Definitely did this one with my dear friend skylanth in mind. Not sure if her flasks of mysterious liquids ever do this?

Anyway. I had high ambitions for this piece but they involved drawing way more glass beakers and flasks than it turns out I was comfortable with. So instead you get sparklies. Maybe I’ll go back and draw more glass later.

[more incongruities. fewer sparkles.]

I loooooove it!

(Click for bigger) More old art…a fairly comprehensive study of one of my favorite noms - the pineapple guava! It is neither pineapple nor guava, nor does it really taste like either. It tastes like…itself and nothing else. In California, people plant them as ornamental landscape, not even knowing how delicious they can be. Sadly up here in WA, it’s too cold for them to grow. 

Done in micron pen and cheapo $1 watercolors (I think the kid’s Crayola ones…it doesn’t matter, the paint mixes just fine) on a cloudy afternoon at UC Santa Cruz’s experimental and demonstration farm.

Today’s breakfast.
You know, I think this is the first time a prosthetic limb has been rendered in pasta form. …Representation?
This may be the first pasta dragon, too. Representation! 

No one going to talk about the dragon getting fisted in that pasta drawing???

Oh…oh I see it now. I also see a big grin on his pasta dragon face so I guess it’s all good.
