The title refers not to the critter, but to the moss-like plants growing out of the branch. An epiphyte is a plant that grows on another plant or object without parasitizing its host. Many orchids, for instance, grow on living trees but derive all their nutrients from air, water, and detritus.
Last Monday (6/17/13) marked the beginning of 50-50, an art marathon hosted annually by Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, California. 69 local artists were selected to each create fifty small works of art in fifty days. They will be diplayed in a 7x7 grid with the 50th set to the side, like so: [link]
My chosen theme is "Bioforms," Bic ballpoint pen on Canson "classic cream" drawing paper, 6x6. Each will be mounted on a rigid particle board backing. Here I will illustrate scientific concepts and explore the organic forms and patterns found in nature.
They are for sale for, you guessed it, $50. Please message me through my facebook artist page if you are interested. [link]
