The Scale of the Tiny Universe : Sketching Close Up

It was a small adventure. Really small. It was inspired by the Scale of the UNIVERSE
 Planets and star clusters, meet microbes and quantum foam; your balancing counterparts. 
Carving bacteria, inspired by a sketchbook page.
Painting petri dishes and filling them with stamped bacteria.
Snipping and stitching them into postcards. Read all about it here on the Sketchbook Challenge.


I'm going to gift some doses of bacterial love by sending these microbial postcards via snail mail. If you'd like to receive one, please leave your name in the comments below and I'll use a random generator to pick recipients.

  2. These postcards are wonderful. When I got to the lab to have blood drawn they have big posters on the wall of different microbes etc--so colorful and interesting!

  5. I just read an article about a photographer who studies grains of sand and now this! I like your bacteria laden postcard much better than the little boy who coughed in my face and shared his germs with me last week. Have a wonderful and artistically germ filled week.
