Haru makes preparations for a mid-morning nap.
Happy turtle casts long shadow; little dog nonplussed.
I am cat sitting this li'l teenage punk, and it's AWESOME. Do you think his marks look like a toupee?
@duchessleighjewelry this storefront reminds me of you to no end! ♡
Just finishing up this masterfully written biography of Alexander von Humboldt 1769-1859, geographer and polymath who greatly influenced the way the western world relates to the environment. His work inspired Darwin, Thoreau, Muir, and many more. Everything named "Humbolt" is named after him. Thanks @duchessleighjewelry for prompting this post! #geography #gayhistory #bookstagram
Happy autumn! This is an apple from a tree in the hills; a tree that contends with a lot of adversity. Amazing what perseverance yeilds.
The nitrogen cycle in wetlands. Cattails for this illustration, but same deal for rice!
Example illustration from Floodplains. Watercolor with text overlay.
This gem just hit the shelves at UC Press. I'm a coauthor and produced graphics, including watercolors, maps, and more! Main messages are: (1) floodplains are engines of productivity, (2) allowing room for rivers to flood reduces risk to people, and (3) there are ways to achieve BOTH human uses and environmental benefits. Sacramento and Napa are case studies as well as Mississippi, Netherlands projects, Murray-Darling, Ebro, and more. ♡
Libraries are the best! I got lost in the stacks today - the rhythm of the shelves is hypnotizing. Go toward the light!
Halloween is just around the corner! Prepping jack-o-lanterns for kids to paint at the Napa farmer's market with mom yesterday.
I bring you: the cat cairn. You're welcome.
Cubist sculpture representing the tenuous assurance of sustenance? Ode to a needle?
Strange midsummer flower in a drought-tolerant garden, happy bees!
A wild sunset in a civilized place; if we can reconcile the two that might be progress.
