The Gloomy Nudibranch, Tambja morosa, lives in the Indo Pacific ocean from Hawaii to South Africa. The greener color in this illustration is found in specimens living in New Zealand, whereas elsewhere the nudis tend to have a blacker color. They nibble on bryozoans (colonial invertebrates that grow like coral) using their radula. The radula is a kind of ‘toothed tongue’ used to scrape up food.
- These high quality, beautiful giclées are printed on 9oz cotton duck canvas primed to accommodate the industry's finest archival inks.
- The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclee is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are "sprayed" onto a high-quality paper. The smooth transitions of color gradients make giclee prints appear much more realistic to the original than other prints.
- Handmade by Julia Beery, a science illustrator with an affinity for mushrooms, bats, and all kinds of plants. She is in awe of the world we live in, and explores the strangeness of this world through drawing. She grew up in Berkeley, California, and currently lives in Oakland.
