The Hopkin’s Rose Nudibranch, Okenia rosacea, lives on the coast from Oregon to Baja California. This species was first described in Monterey Bay, which is home to the Hopkins Marine Station. The numerous long appendages covering their bodies are called palliae. Their pink color comes from a chemical called hopkinsiaxanthin, and may come from their bryozoan (colonial invertebrate that grows like coral) 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.
