Drawings & Artwork

I like to sometimes pretend that I have artistic talents - Mostly revolving around technical drawings of insects. I play around with other forms of visual expression sometimes too...

If you have a new enough browser (version 3 or higher), then clicking on the thumbnails below will bring up a new window with a larger version of each image.


I have provided drawings for several scientific papers and one book (Godfray, H.C.J (1994) Parasitoids - Behavioral and Evolutionary Ecology, Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ), mostly of insects, but also of a few other creatures and concepts.

I also occasionally dabble with computer "art", again mostly for illustrative purposes...
