It’s late, I’m listening to PIL and trying to study for my quiz. As usual I get caught up doodling and planning out the next cycling jersey that I’m going to sew. But at least I have a drawing of our wonderful Milutin Milankovitch! Clever lil’ fart!
I have always wondered how illustrators for science text books get their jobs. ‘Cause man, I’d rather see my illustrations than theirs! Their illustrations are always so dull and homogeneous.
A quick sketch of Charles.
some of my favorite invertebrates are illustrated here, including the one I failed to get right on an exam last year (the brachiopod…dammit).
I’m not condoning alcoholism but I want to defend alcohol, it has played an important roll in my life. Since I can’t afford insurance, bicycles and alcohol are my only medicines for my frequent anxiety attacks. I bike daily, so I don’t drink often but some days, the anxiety is so over baring that I need to take a swig of some ethanol. So here is my thank you drawing to liquor! thank you alcohol, you are always there for me.
Fun Facts: The word pasteurization comes from Louis Pasteur. A chemist and microbiologist who came up with pasteurizing beer and wine! Also I do have several bikes as the illustration shows and I really do have a periodic table next to my bed (I know, your jealous).
Here is a lovely illustration of an ammonoid, crinoid, rugose corral, archimedes and brain corral. This is my quick depiction of a cretaceous marine environment (the ammonoid’s sutures are characteristic of the cretaceous). But wait! Archimedes and rugose died out by the Permian, this sketch is as misleading as Jurassic Park! Well at least it’s invertebrates (sorry to all my vertebrate peeps).
Personal fun fact: one day a hope to find a crinoid calyx!
The only thing I could do to stay awake.
I usually enjoy this class but today was one of those days that nobody can focus.
Math is really hard but at the same time it is so amazing. You can describe the world and the universe using math and the more you use it the more you understand about all our surroundings. This sketch is just a little thank you to the supposed man who discovered irrational numbers. Some accounts state that Hippasus (a pythagorian) discovered irrational numbers and was punished for divulging this information to the people. His punishment was to drown himself, some accounts say that the sentence was directed by the gods and some say that the pythagorians’ minds were so blown that they threw Hippasus over the ship that they were in. Needless to say, life has always been pretty rough for hustlers and mathematicians!
Fun Fact: My favorite shape is the triangle. You can do so much and describe so much using a triangle! Not to mention that the unit circle is just meaningless without understanding triangles. I also use the pythagorian theorem and trigonometric functions when I sew and draw symmetric pictures! Gee, math sure is great!
So hard to focus! When war wages on in your mind! The enemy takes no prisoners! and the only relief is to keep doodling!
Notice the sweet parabolic dunes and transverse dunes (with an arrow to show you the wind direction) down bellow!
I really should focus on water chemistry but cephalopods just keep swimming in my head!
Squids may look rather phallic but not even close compared to a geoduck… I’ll let you look that one up (may be questionably safe for work).
Fun fact: Cephalopods first appear in the fossil record in the Late Cambrian!
No better vision than sweet math! and no better way to plot strikes dips and apparent angles than with this sweet stereonet, that I just modified today. All who saw it were instantaneously jealous. and yes, you may make as many copies of it as you like.
Monkey themed help session! Life doesn’t get any better than this. Everyone is so smart in this class, so this simple-little problem probably won’t come up in the study, in fact there is a good chance nobody will show up at all. To bad, they’ll miss out on baboons solving stoichiometric problems and radio active decay.
