the original plan with this was to do some cel shading practice but since that’s going to take another century until I finish, and I want to update my demo reel like NOW, this second, this INSTANT..this is it.

I’m an artist with a molecular biology degree from the University of Washington, and I’ve been working on making science infographics for several months now. 

This week I made an animated identification chart of North American butterflies. You can check out the full sized GIF here or pick up a poster for your room here :)

This rules! 

Really amazing work!

Mini wattle fence, to hold the herbs in the herb spiral.

#DIY

Wattle fences and retaining walls can easily be built from the leftovers of pruning, or from coppiced wood. This technique is the most basic form of fence construction, having been in use since Neolithic times.

I continually harvest apple, dogwood, willow, and hazelnut wood from designated coppicing trees in my yard, because these local species happen to grow both quickly and straightly. There are a number of “fences in progress” that are built higher every time I go around and maintain trees. Preparing materials is easy: I trim the bases of prunings down to sturdy fence posts of a uniform height and circumference; the rest I trim into flexible pieces for weaving the rest of the fence. The leftovers from all of this are piled up in #hugelkultur mounds. I hammer the posts down 1/3 of their height, and the rest is just simple weaving back and forth, between posts.

I have used this method for #raised beds, #straw bale gardens, and purely for aesthetic purposes with great success, but then again, I am not one to complain when it’s 100% free!

Quick Vertical Garden for Strawberries

An old wine case and a waxed paper bag become home to twelve new strawberry cuttings, pruned from runners in the garden.

#seed saving
Despite promising beginnings, I had very marginal success growing Caigua / Achocha / Peruvian Stuffing Cucumber (seeds from desixlb).
My four plants never recovered from me leaving them un-watered for 10 days while on vacation.
Thus harvesting seeds has been my number-one priority with the plant this year, so I can have another crack at it next year. I have (for certain) three pods for seed, and three pods for eating: not bad for my first crack at raising this Andean specialty!

It’s the small, almost banal processes of life that fascinate me.
