The Story behind my drawing:

When I was an undergraduate biology student many botany and zoology classes required drawing of structures observed under a microscope. I was fascinated by beauty and often complexity of shapes but also tempted to improve the image by adding details that, in my opinion, would make the picture even more interesting. Needless to say, the impact on my grades was not so great… Now, no longer a scientist, I am free to draw the creatures or structures that I want. Although they are often still based on biological subjects, they are unique fictional beings, or simply abstract shapes of my choice.
