Veins of Water: The Evolution of the Echinoderm Water-Vascular System

My art in the science blogosphere – Deep Sea News article

My older work “Echinodermata,” which depicts the branches of the echinoderm lineage with a cladogram in the sand, was recently used in an excellent post: Veins of Water: The Evolution of the Echinoderm Water-Vascular System, by Kevin Zelnio at Deep Sea News.

This work was also used as a backdrop in an interview with Dr. Christopher Mah (of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and the Echinoblog).

My artwork as a backdrop for a scientist interview!

The excellent scientist and blogger, Dr. Christopher Mah (of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and the Echinoblog was interviewed at Ocean Portal about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill’s impact on some of the lesser appreciated organisms: the echinoderms (sea stars, sea urchins, etc). My artwork “Echinodermata” is prominently displayed behind him (Note: the poster was originally a gift to Chris back when I created it).

Here is the interview:

Look for this behind Chris:
