for those of your who are not aware of his work i really must bring Ernst Haeckle to your attention. taxonomical, scientific illustration is one of my favorite forms of art, aesthetically. the reason i respond so much to artists like walton ford, tiffany bozic, and ryan mclennan is because of an early love of artists like john audubon. naturalists' illustrations have always appealed to the scientific, meticulous side of me and i'm always floored by absolute control of medium and flawless technical skill. while reading an article on tiffany bozic on fecal face, she listed ernst haeckle as one of her artistic inspirations i had to investigate. what i found was some of the most beautiful, detailed and down right psychodelic art i've encountered in recent times.
