Some studies of the dental anatomy of a cow for my scientific illustration class. I’m having so much fun with it! I also had to paint an actual cow for this assignment, which will be posted for my $1 patreon on saturday as well as a cute little speedpaint video of the process!

Also! I ordered some prints for a double-print-set listing for my store, but accidentally ordered the wrong paper. So for a limited time, every order that is at least $5 on my etsy will include a FREE mini print set! They are small prints of these pieces:

If you just want the prints without anything from my etsy, you can order them for $5 on my depop

Thanks for your support!! <3

As a teenager I spent a lot of time walking around my hometown listening to music on headphones in the middle of the night. There’s a river near my parent’s house and a great blue heron would stand silent in the water during midnight hours. Year after year, the same heron would always return. I’d stand as close to it as I could, just staring at it. I visited the river at night last summer and the heron was still there. I’d like to think it remembers me. I looked up the average lifespan of a great blue heron and it says about 15-20 years. By that measure, the heron is probably reaching the end of its life. I wonder if a new heron will claim its spot once it has passed. Maybe its spirit will remain there forever, guarding the river and fishing silent in the moonlight.
